Building on the successes of the Massachusetts Energy Management Pilot , the Energy Leaders Roundtable Group, a coalition of state and federal agencies and energy efficiency service providers ( MassSave ), was established in July 2010 to help foster greater participation among drinking water and wastewater treatment facilities in reducing energy costs.

A total of 85 facilities (water and wastewater) are working to be Energy Leaders, as shown on this map:

The Energy Leaders Working Group is helping to coordinate energy audits; assess energy usage; prioritize action items; implement recommendations; and assist in securing incentives and financial support for energy upgrades at these facilities. These meetings are held quarterly and materials from recent sessions can be found below.

 

Upcoming Meetings:

Tuesday, September 10, 2013 - "Finding the Money, Efficiency Upgrades and Solar PPAs". Time and location TBA.

Tuesday, November 19, 2013 - "Implementing Your Energy Action Plan, Efficiency During Process Improvements and Owning Your PV". Time and location TBA.

This listing will be updated as more details become available. Contact Aimee Powelka for more information.
