Water and Wastewater Energy Reduction

Water and Wastewater

HelioPower has been helping water and wastewater facilities with their energy reduction for years. We know there is no one-size fits all solution because each Enterprise's operation is unique. That's why we offer two key service lines.

See how our water and wastewater clients find their cost-effective energy solutions that support their financial and operational integrity.

An Intro to the Energy Management Frame Work Assessment for Wastewater Energy Reduction

HelioPower participated in the Energy Roadmap Summit workshops on March 28 and 29, 2012, in Raleigh, N.C. The Water Environment Federation. This summit brought together nearly 40 water and energy professionals with experience in designing, implementing, and operating energy projects at wastewater treatment plants. The goal of the summit was to create a “road map” to help plants increase on-site energy production, reduce energy consumption and focus on overall energy management; all with the aim of promoting wastewater energy reduction.

As a result of our work, WEF developed an energy roadmap. The Roadmap is a guide for Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) to reach energy neutrality and beyond. It is structured in a series of steps that are arranged in six categories to help water and wastewater utilities plan and implement an energy program. The road map is applicable whether WRRFs choose simply to increase energy efficiency or to build a full-scale distributed generation systems. Categories range from technical needs to organizational aspects, and steps are applicable to all sizes of facilities.

HelioPower and Water Districts

Over the past 12 years, we’ve successfully engineered, financed, and implemented over 4,500 clean energy projects for our clients. Our team will sit down with you to design an integrated energy solution especially tailored to your business needs. Even after implementation, HelioPower helps with ongoing operations, maintenance, and management to ensure your energy project successfully reaches the set forth project goals.

HelioPower's process begins with energy analytics.  Whether you have a deep understanding of your energy intensity per MG or MGD, or need help to develop an energy intensity profile, our consultants can help map out a path to greater energy efficiency.  HelioPower is a member of the Water Environment Federation (WEF) and a member of WEF's Energy Roadmap Steering Committee that was responsible for producing WEF's Energy Roadmap.  We've helped numerous water districts around the country develop a better understanding of their energy intensity and an action plan to improve their energy efficiency and overall cost of energy.
