On Thursday, May 31, 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Water Energy Management Webinar Series will offer a free webinar on “Using EPA’s Energy Assessment Tool for Water and Wastewater Systems.” Here you can learn the steps in performing an energy-use assessment at small- to medium-sized water or wastewater systems.
What have we heard?
Providing safe drinking water and clean water is an energy-intensive activity. Many drinking water and wastewater utilities are recognizing the importance of reducing energy consumption as a means to reduce their operational costs.
What can help?
Performing energy-use assessments prior to a full-scale energy audit helps systems in understanding their total energy consumption.
How can this be done?
The EPA’s newly released Energy-Use Assessment Tool helps small- to medium-sized systems conduct a utility bill and equipment analysis to determine their individual baseline energy use and costs. This information can help systems make informed energy-efficiency and energy conservation decisions.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, May 31, 2012, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. EDT. Register today at https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/334111822.
