ACEEE releases new report on link between water and energy efficiency

Oct. 3, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The report details the benefits of combining water and energy utility programs.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has published a new report, entitled “Saving Water and Energy Together: Helping Utilities Build Better Programs,” which outlines areas where water and energy utilities can design and administer programs together to achieve greater water and energy savings, according to a press release.

The report is part of a series by ACEEE highlighting innovative ways that utilities can design new programs and technologies to help their customers reduce energy waste, according to the release.

Because water and energy are inherently linked, continued the release, efficiency programs will affect both simultaneously, making joint efficiency programs a worthwhile venture.

Benefits of joint water and energy utility programs include cost-effective expense sharing, shared manufacturer and retailer relationships, dual audits and rebate programs and the opportunity to increase public knowledge about the relationship between water and energy, the release reported.
