Providing drinking water and wastewater requires energy – and a lot of it. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the cost of energy as a percent of operating costs for drinking water system can reach as high as 40 percent and is expected to increase 20 percent in the next 15 years. Though many operational costs may be fixed costs, energy costs represent the largest controllable cost of providing water services. Thus, energy management is becoming a more important aspect of a utility’s asset management program.

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Develop a baseline of energy use
  • Conduct an energy audit
  • Identify energy efficiency opportunities
  • Prioritize and implement energy efficiency projects
  • Identify financing opportunities for energy projects

While system operators are welcome, this training is best suited for individuals who make financial decisions on behalf of small water systems–board members, local government managers and finance staff, and system managers.

Trainers:
Heather Himmelberger, Director, Southwest Environmental Finance Center
Dawn Nall, Program Manager, Southwest Environmental Finance Center

Cost: Complimentary. Please register to reserve your spot.
