Energy Efficiency in the Water Industry: A Compendium of Best Practices and Case Studies - Global Report
ISBN: 1 84057 571 9
Energy consumption by the water sector has increased considerably as a consequence of the implementation of new technologies to meet tightening potable water and effluent quality standards. The price of energy around the world has also substantially increased.
The objective of this research study was to develop a Compendium of world-wide best practice in the energy efficient design and operation of water industry assets.
The compendium records energy efficiency best practice across a matrix of the water cycle from abstraction, treatment and distribution to sewerage, treatment and disposal. The processes start with conservation and leakage, focus on pumping and aeration, and include sludge treatment. Relevant renewable energy applications are covered to reduce the net energy demand.
Best practices are established through Fact Sheets and illustrated by Case Studies from across the world linked to headings in the matrix. Conclusions on savings and technology are drawn and suggestions are made for future research and development.
The compendium allows easy assimilation of best practice to increase energy efficiency in the water industry for senior management, engineering, operation and maintenance personnel.
