European Water Regulators WAREG

WAREG Report: An analysis of water efficiency KPIs in WAREG member countries

This report analyses the application of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to describe efficiency of water services in WAREG member countries, with the aim to draw out commonalities as well as differences in monitoring of water efficiency measures and performance. It seeks to outline how different European regulators promote water efficiency within their regulated industries. It is noted that although various KPIs and benchmarking platforms exist in the water industry, there appears to be a lack of consistency in the definitions, descriptions, application and consistency of KPIs used to measure water efficiency across Europe. It is further noted that while some countries use KPIs for benchmarking purposes, this practice has still not been fully embraced by regulators in WAREG member countries.

Energy Management for Water Utilities in Latin America and the Caribbean with Austria case study

Recognition of the importance of energy management for water and wastewater utilities is on the rise throughout Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Meanwhile, energy use, electricity costs, and populations are booming. LAC countries are working within this context to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through an increased access to sanitation, the mitigation of polluted waterways, and a reduction of carbon emissions.As part of a multifaceted project on energy management for water utilities, this report explores energy efficiency and energy recovery potential in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) across the LAC region. Case studies from Colombia, Brazil, United States and Austria. This report is relevant for the Danube region as the challenges and drivers in energy efficiency found in LAC parallel those of the Danube region.
