Energy Savings In Water And Wastewater Systems

This white paper addresses how hydraulic models can be used to instantiate energy savings by reducing energy waste, promote better efficiencies in operating a pumping system, and exploit flexible energy tariffs available in the market place. The paper covers basic topics such as: pump curves, energy calculations to determine how much energy is being used, energy management tools to try to reduce energy use by becoming more efficient, and understanding and manipulating energy rates.
