DOE expanding efficiency programs to water

DOE expanding efficiency programs to water (AWWA Announcement)

The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced that it is expanding efficiency programs to reach water and wastewater utilities under the supervision of the department’s Advanced Manufacturing Office.

Among them is The Better Plants Program, a voluntary recognition program to support a 25 percent improvement in energy intensity over 10 years. All water utilities in the United States are eligible to become a Better Plants Partner, regardless of size or level of energy management expertise. As partners in the program, the utilities will receive access to technical experts who can provide help in establishing and analyzing key energy performance metrics, assistance in identifying emerging energy-efficient technologies and networking, and peer-to-peer sharing with other partners. 

Partners in the BPP can also receive technical in-plant training opportunities on common energy-use systems and plant-wide energy management; access to proven energy analysis software tools; priority access to DOE's Industrial Assessment Centers; and national recognition, including letters from DOE leadership, certificates, invitations to special events, media opportunities and more. 

Interested utilities are encouraged to visit energy.gov/betterplants and to contact Scott Hutchins at DOE with questions (please mention that you heard about this opportunity through AWWA).
