WEF Offers Members Access to Energy Roadmap Executive Summary

Energy Roadmap CoverThe Energy Roadmap: A Water and Wastewater Utility Guide to More Sustainable Energy Management offers guidance for utilities to take advantage of sustainable energy sources. The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) now offers the executive summary of the book to members online at no cost and to nonmembers for $7.

In 2012, WEF convened a group of water and energy sector leaders to develop a document that offers utilities of all sizes a path toward sustainable energy management through such activities as renewable energy production and energy conservation. The group produced the roadmap, which outlines approaches to cost-effective recovery and reuse of wastes. The summary provides a detailed outline of the book, which covers management, organizational culture, communication, energy generation, and innovating for the future.

“A renewable energy revolution is underway … and this ‘sea change’ is rapidly transforming the water sector landscape from treatment of water alone to the recovery of valuable resources ––clean water, vital nutrients, and renewable energy,” Ed McCormick,WEF President and former manager of wastewater engineering at East Bay Municipal Utility District (Oakland, Calif.). “The Energy Roadmap: A Water and Wastewater Utility Guide to More Sustainable Energy Management will help to innovate and cost effectively turn treatment facilities into ‘green factories.”
