Wastewater treatment plants are not waste disposal facilities but are water resource recovery facilities that produce clean water, recover nutrients (such as phosphorus and nitrogen), and have the potential to reduce the nation’s dependence on fossil fuels through the production and use of renewable energy and the implementation of energy conservation. A number of utilities have already taken the leap towards resource recovery and have begun this transformation, many more are peering over the edge. WEF believes that all utilities will significantly improve their energy management, reduce their energy use and generate additional renewable energy. Utilities will do so not only because it is the “right” thing to do, but because it is fiscally prudent. WEF believes that within 20 years we will eliminate flaring of biogas and reduce energy use by 10 to 20 percent while improving the quality of the products we produce. WEF’s Roadmap to Energy Sustainability is designed to be a tool for utilities of all sizes and levels of advancement to identify areas for potential improvement, prioritize them, and then take the appropriate next steps toward increased energy independence.
