Welcome to NEMA Water Energy Toolkit

The result of a 2016 NEMA Strategic Initiative to study the relationship of electricity and water in urban water systems, the Water Energy Toolkit provides resources to utility owners, managers, and employees about

  • Improvements and upgrades to water systems
  • Paying for energy-saving programs
  • Pump, motor, metering, and control systems training

This portion of the site provides information on energy savings performance contracts (ESPC) practices, government grants, and other financing mechanisms to finance modernization and system upgrades.

Significant energy and water savings in the water utility sector are possible and financially viable. Visit this section to access:

  • Ready-to-use training packages ranging from basic to advanced design and construction for pumps, motors, metering, and control systems
  • Workforce development resources
  • Increasing Energy Efficiency in Urban Water Systems: Summary Report
  • Companion documents to Increasing Energy Efficiency in Urban Water Systems
  • Literature review
