Renewable Energy in the Water/Wastewater Industries – from current lessons to future contributions

 
Price: £100  

Water companies must deliver potable water, treat wastewater, and adhere to quality standards, at a regulated price. There is conflict between these objectives and striving for a low carbon operation.

Whilst water companies can develop renewable energy projects that are considered to be within their regulated business, such as Combined Heat and Power, they are not permitted to develop other projects such as wind energy. Such renewable energy projects could also help maximise efficiency on site and reduce the need for grid electricity.

The aim of this project has been to assist water companies identify and implement renewable energy schemes through the development of a comprehensive techno-financial model to support decision-making, as well as case studies, which will help identify new project opportunities as well as mitigate risks.
