Achieving savings through innovation and collaboration
Working with our program partners at the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), Cascade launched the first Wastewater Energy Coaching (WEC) cohort in western New York in 2018 with nine water resource recovery facilities participating. This program, sponsored by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), is aimed at bringing strategic energy management (SEM) concepts and organizational awareness to the wastewater industry in New York.
NYSERDA’s program includes one half-day and five full-day workshops, full-day “treasure hunts” for each participant, energy modeling to track savings, and technical and organizational coaching and assistance.
Midway through the engagement, several of the participants came together to share their thoughts about the experience in a short video.
