The Carbon Heat Energy Assessment Plant Evaluation Tool (CHEApet) uses predictive models to quantify plant operating energy requirements and predict the carbon footprint from wastewater treatment plants. This report presents demonstration studies applying CHEApet at three different sized wastewater facilities who were interested in documenting and improving their energy efficiency. The demonstration studies include data on the CHEApet model setup for the existing plant, simulated energy information compared to real energy demand data measured at each facility, estimated carbon footprint, and examples of how efficiency scenarios can be used to evaluate plant upgrades and improvements.
