Energy Management

Though many operational costs may be fixed costs, energy costs represent the largest controllable cost of providing water services. Energy costs can account for as much as 40 percent of operating costs. Not only that, but energy prices are expected to increase by 20 percent in the next 15 years. Now is the time to control energy costs.

In our Energy Management workshops, you will learn how to:
– Conduct an energy audit and establish a baseline
– Prioritize and implement energy efficiency projects,
– Calculate project payback and current performance
– Identify financing opportunities for energy projects
