Energy costs are the largest controllable cost for water systems. In 2010, water usage by the residential, commercial, industrial and power sectors for direct water and steam services used 12.6% of the nation’s total annual energy consumption, equivalent to the total energy consumption of approximately 40 million Americans. A significant portion of this amount (2-3% of the national total) was used by drinking water and wastewater systems.
A good energy management plan can improve energy efficiency, manage energy consumption, control peak demand for energy, manage energy cost volatility, and improve energy reliability. The NYSERDA seven step model for energy management planning waa shared with operators and decision makers. The webinar also included small water systems sharing their experiences with energy management planning.
