EDUCATION WORKSHOP: INCORPORATING WATER EFFICIENCY INTO ENERGY MANAGEMENT PLANNING
The Compact educational session, ‘Incorporating Water Efficiency into Energy Management Planning’, hosted by MIT on 6 December 2017, helped highlight water efficiency strategies and best practices to maximize water, energy and cost savings. Participants learnt about the water use profile in Cambridge, and the water department’s ‘High Read’ notification program that alerts property owners of spikes in water use. Discussions focused on water audits, tools to track water use, utility incentives available to implement water efficiency projects and water use reduction case studies in Cambridge.
Compact members were invited to support the development of a ‘Water Conservation Plan’ for the city by providing input on this questionnaire. Feedback will be valuable to understand the current level of water use and water use efficiency among city businesses and residents.
