November 2018 | Robert B. Sowby and Steven J. Burian (University of Utah)

This work introduces a statistical model to estimate a water system’s energy use as a function of its size, water source type, and climate setting. By considering such factors, the method enables more equitable comparisons of energy use among diverse water systems.
