Abstract:

The rising cost of energy has led a growing number of wastewater treatment facility managers to consider ways to lower their energy consumption. Assessing progress in reducing energy consumption over time requires understanding current consumption levels and developing a system to measure and manage energy consumption. In October 2007, EPA added municipal wastewater facilities to the ENERGY STAR® program's online energy management tool, Portfolio Manager. This paper will describe how the ENERGY STAR performance benchmarking capability for wastewater facilities works, including data inputs, features and outputs. The goal is to highlight the subtleties of using Portfolio Manager and possible implications of the benchmarking results.
