Aspects of Energy Efficiency in Water Supply systems

  title={Aspects of Energy Efficiency in Water Supply systems},
  author={M. Feldman},
Water supply systems are massive consumers of energy, which is consumed in each of the stages of the water production and supply chain: starting from pumping the water to the water treatment plant, along the treatment process and while distributing the water via the network. Energy efficiency may be achieved by improving the pump station design, system design, installation of Variable Speed Drives to pumps, and operating pumps efficiently. Leakage reduction would bring to significant savings in… Expand
