Energy Performance Metrics for Public Water Systems

October 2018 | Robert B. Sowby

Going beyond wire-to-water efficiency, this presentation introduces important metrics for managing your water system’s energy use. These indicators address energy efficiency at the equipment, facility, and system levels with considerations for water loss, demand charges, cost of electricity, non-hydraulic loads, and changes over time. You’re probably already collecting the data you need for these metrics; now it’s time to apply them and improve.
