Energy Audits for Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants and Pump Stations

COURSE NO: M02-041
Energy Audits for Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants and Pump Stations
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will cover how to plan, prepare and execute a process energy audit for a water or wastewater treatment plant or pump station as well as analyze the results and discuss energy saving strategies and energy conservation measures.


Water and wastewater utilities consume approximately 4% of the power in the United States. For water utilities the largest energy consuming operation is pumping, while for wastewater utilities secondary and tertiary treatment are the processes consuming the largest quantities of power. Reducing process energy consumption in a water or wastewater treatment plant starts with a process energy audit specific to this type of facility.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to engineers, designers, contractors, facility managers and plant operators who are interested in learning about energy audits for water and wastewater treatment plants and pump stations.
