The Water RF and WERF collaborated in this project to provide better decisions on reducing non-renewable energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the water and wastewater service sector. A software tool is included that guides a utility through the process of developing a portfolio of options to meet their goals for reductions in energy use, GHG emissions, energy cost and increasing the percentage of renewable energy. The tool is a Microsoft Excel workbook that includes guidance on the use of the tool. Published by WaterRF in collaboration with WERF. 184 pages. Soft cover and online PDF. (2011)

Originally funded as WERF project OWSO7C07.
