US EPA Energy Management Webcast Series for Water and Wastewater Utilities

April 11, 2012

US EPA Energy Management Webcast Series for Water and Wastewater Utilities

Innovative Energy Conservation Measures at Wastewater Treatment Facilities


Thursday, May 17, 2012
90 Minute audio Web broadcast
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Eastern Standard Time


Improving energy efficiency is an ongoing challenge for water sector utilities. While energy costs often represent 25-30% of a plant's total O&M costs, they also represent the largest controllable cost of providing water and wastewater services. One key step for wastewater utilities to take to become more energy efficient is to evaluate and adopt innovative measures to conserve energy and move toward energy self-sufficiency.

The first part of this webcast will focus on energy conservation and self-sufficiency based on EPA's 2010 document entitled Evaluation of Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) for Wastewater Treatment Facilities. The second part of the webcast will focus on the successful implementation of various ECMs and energy recovery at the Sheboygan Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant in Wisconsin. Implementation of these cutting edge projects has enabled the facility to be well on its way to becoming energy self-sufficient.
