Energy Efficiency in the Water Industry: A Compendium of Best Practices and Case Studies – Global Report

M J Brandt, R A Middleton and S Wang, 2012

Over the last decade, energy consumption by the water sector has increased considerably as a consequence of the implementation of new technologies to meet new potable water and effluent quality standards. The price of energy has also substantially increased and these increases will be compounded by the need for additional energy intensive processes to achieve more exacting regulatory requirements.

This Compendium draws together the best practice in energy efficient design and operation of water industry assets. The book identifies the developments and future opportunities by detailed examination of current best practice and technologies:

It illustrates incremental improvements in energy efficiency through optimisation of existing assets and operations. More substantial improvements in energy efficiency from the adoption of novel technologies. Successful case studies based on results of full scale operations. This compendium is an invaluable reference for water engineers, utility managers, and water and energy professionals.
