New Water Research Foundation Report Provides Tools to Help Water Utilities

Read the full story in Water Efficiency.

As part of its ongoing focus to help water utilities reduce energy consumption and improve sustainability, the Water Research Foundation (WaterRF) has published its latest report, titled: “Toolbox for Water Utility Energy and Greenhouse Gas Emission Management” (Project #4224).

This project evaluates, compares, and contrasts process models, impact assessment methods, and performance indicators used by water utilities in North America, Europe, South Africa, and Australia to evaluate their energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The project also identifies how these tools can be used to support management decisions at water utilities. The report discusses implications of different methodologies, investigates opportunities to establish a harmonized assessment method, and provides related recommendations. Research partners include the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and the Global Water Research Coalition.
