Electric and Water Utility Integrated Planning
This online engineering PDH course will examine the water-energy nexus, the commonalities and differences between electric and water utilities, methods of reducing power and water demands, and future collaboration between these utility types.
Electric power utilities are the largest consumers of water in the United States. Water withdrawals in the United States for thermoelectric power plants account for approximately 200 billion gallons of water per day according to the U.S. Geological Survey. At the same time water and wastewater utilities are also thirsting for water and power. Water utilities need to ensure consistent water and wastewater services while meeting ever more stringent treatment requirements that require more power.
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, designers, contractors, facility managers and plant operators who are interested in learning about electric and water utility integrated planning.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the water-energy nexus
