Title:Public Water Infrastructure Plant Efficiency Program
Author(s):University of Illinois. Prairie Research Institute. Illinois Sustainable Technology Center. Technical Assistance Program
Subject(s):Publicly owned treatment works -- Illinois -- Energy conservation
Wastewater treatment plants -- Illinois -- Energy conservation
Abstract:Since 2018, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Energy has partnered with the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC) and the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) to help municipalities reduce energy and costs for water and wastewater treatment. Funded by the Illinois EPA through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, no-cost energy efficiency opportunity usage assessments are provided to publicly owned water and wastewater treatment facilities by SEDAC and ISTC. Since the program began, total recommendations made by ISTC and SEDAC, if fully implemented, represent a savings of 39.7 million kWh, a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at 32,590 metric tons of CO2 equivalent, and 3 million dollars total cost savings.
