Energy Roadmap – Directions to the “Utility of the Future”

Now is an exciting time to be a wastewater utility leader. The water sector is rapidly moving from the treatment of wastewater alone to the “manufacturing” of products that are useful to society in our “Green Factories,” including recycled water, renewable energy, fertilizer, nutrients, biodiesel, and clean natural gas. There are toolboxes, guides, manuals, and primers for nearly every significant utility priority from “Asset Management” to “Zero Waste.” And there is certainly no shortage of useful information on the emerging the nexus between water and energy.


WEF’s
Energy Roadmap: A Water and Wastewater Utility Guide to More Sustainable Energy Management may be a game-changer for utilities across the continent. This publication, a must-read for utility leaders everywhere, takes the wealth of information that is out there from a wide variety of sources, consolidates the thinking of dozens of leading water and energy professionals working in this arena, and boils it all down to a succinct, easy-to-read, and eye-catching energy leadership guide full of good practical ideas for becoming more energy efficient and sustainable – with a financial benefit to our ratepayers. 

 

Read the free related Energy Roadmap Matrix or check out the full guidance document available at Energy Roadmap; it is colorful and written in plain language, with numerous references and a wealth of easy-to-implement strategies to help you or your clients to reduce energy use and create additional renewable energy. Guidance tables for each of the six topic areas (Strategic Management; Organizational Culture; Communication and Outreach; Demand-side Management; Energy Generation, and Innovating for the Future), list characteristics of utilities in a three-step progression. Use them to get inspiration and then find additional guidance in each of the six detailed sections.


You can also get inspired by the seven case studies of global successes from around the country and the two test drive case studies of the utilities currently using the Energy Roadmap to enhance their energy management practices. Every milestone along the road will pay dividends for your customers, and this guide will help utilities, professional services consultants, industry, and equipment manufacturers to “start your engine!”
