The Australian Urban Water industry invested in renewable energy
To reduce energy costs and impacts in a carbon-constrained world
As a large user of energy, the water industry is playing its part for a cleaner energy future.
The Australian water sector uses a large amount of energy to deliver water and sewage services. Utilities have and continue to implement renewable energy projects to meet growing energy demands and reduce costs and impacts. Contributions range from small to large-scale and include solar, mini-hydro, biogas generation, cogeneration and wind.
