Program description and covered topics

High energy costs often contribute to unsustainable operating costs that directly affect the financial health of water supply and sanitation utilities and affordability of their services.

This Program will support participating utility companies in collecting, auditing and analyzing data related to their energy use and developing investment programs based on that data to support the reduction of energy costs and increase energy efficiency. The Program will also assist in securing the financial resources to match the investments needs for energy efficiency.

The Program has been developed in cooperation with the Technical Partner Econoler and will be delivered by national or regional Hubs in local language. The duration of the Program is one year and it consists of workshops as well as hands-on exercises at the utilities themselves with support of the Trainers. Participating utilities will pay a registration fee which will be communicated by the Hub.
