The ENERWATER stakeholder workshop will take place on the 28 June from 17:40 to 19:30 in the Auditorium West Road Concert Hall.  More details can be found here.

Across Europe, the treatment of wastewater represents over 1% of the electricity consumption, which is one of the largest energy demands in the public sector. Thus understating how energy is used in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) seems critical for the European utilities to comply with the 2020 Climate and Energy Package targets. Nevertheless, there is a lack of normative documents specific to the determination of energy efficiency in WWTPs.

Funded by the EU Horizon 2020, the ENERWATER consortium main objective is to develop, validate and disseminate an innovative standard methodology for continuously assessing, labelling and improving the overall energy performance of WWTPs. To achieve this aim, an energy monitoring tool will be tested in 50 plants across Germany, Italy and Spain and then be made available on-line to facilitate its use among WWTP managers.

To encourage the exchange of information and receive feedback on the methodology currently under development, ENERWATER invites stakeholder groups, including academics, consultants, energy managers and monitoring specialists, SMEs, utilities, city councils, and policy makers to attend this workshop.
