Welcome to the Water Utility Energy Challenge!

Water Utilities - Are you looking to lower your O&M costs? Make an impact on your budget? Lower your energy related emissions? Use these latest technologies to optimize your utility.  

PEPSO (Pollutant Emission & Pump Station Optimization) is a computational tool that builds upon the traditional EPANET framework with a robust optimizer to allow near real-time targeted reductions of energy consumption, cost, and/or environmental footprint of water network operation. Its unique feature is its ability to calculate real-time, spatially specific, emissions associated with all potential pump station operation scenarios associated with each demand and design condition.

LEEM provides Locational Marginal Emissions (LME) information for 18 states (Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.)

Congratulations to the WUEC Great Lakes Finalists! 

Five water utilities have been chosen from across the Great Lakes Basin for the year-long competition to reduce energy related pollution emissions in their water distribution systems. Finalists compete for two large prizes of $20,000 and $10,000. The geography stretches from Wisconsin to New York and spans utility systems that service as few as 500 to more than 4 million residents. 

Watch our home page as we track the collective emission reduction of the five finalist utilities!
