Water infrastructure isn’t aging, it is old. Much of it represents a time when energy costs were low and water systems were independent of energy systems. The Energy Efficiency Focus Group was formed to identify practices and technologies to improve energy efficiency and lower energy use in process treatment and utility operations. This group is collaboratively investigating several energy conservation technologies to help utilities achieve net-neutrality or energy-positive operations.
