Municipal water and wastewater utilities are critical to local infrastructure. They must ensure safe drinking water and wastewater systems, provide reliable service, meet regulatory and environmental demands, and keep consumer costs down. Meeting high stakeholder standards requires massive amounts of energy, and aging infrastructure results in inefficient energy consumption and costly water loss. Modernizing infrastructure is critical to cut overhead costs, minimize leaks, reclaim revenue with improved metering accuracy, and meet resilience, efficiency, and carbon targets.
Water and wastewater facilities face the growing need to invest heavily in aging infrastructure, find new sources of supply to meet growing demand, address affordability concerns, and meet strict environmental regulations. However, the current landscape provides opportunities to implement energy-efficient technologies and infrastructure.
Water and wastewater utilities are large energy consumers, with as much as 40% of their operating costs dedicated to energy – boosting efficiency can save utilities 15-30%
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) provides a local fiscal recovery fund of more than $65 billion each to cities and counties to improve infrastructure
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides more than $60 billion for state and local governments to address efficiency, resilience, and electrification
While energy and infrastructure upgrades reduce overhead costs, limited budgets and conflicting priorities can restrict spending that doesn’t immediately impact frontline services. Energy Performance Contracts (EPC) help water and wastewater utilities maintain budget neutrality while implementing needed upgrades:
Successful energy and infrastructure upgrades need to achieve the right balance between cost efficiency, resilience, and carbon reduction.
There can be no compromise on quality standards. Upgrading aging energy assets and infrastructure is the key to unlocking long-term savings and will address costly water loss and energy waste.
Water supply failures are unacceptable to consumers and regulators. A secure and reliable energy supply is essential to keep pumping, water treatment systems, and waste management systems working.
The community’s attitude toward the climate is changing, and the government has set clear net zero goals. Upgrading infrastructure is critical to meeting carbon targets and conserving natural resources.
We deliver a full range of technologies and services that help municipal water and wastewater utilities reach their energy and infrastructure goals. They work together to optimize energy and infrastructure comprehensively, and we deploy them in the proper order for maximum energy savings and carbon emissions reduction.
