ENERGY EFFICIENCY

@ REGIONAL

World Bank

Mainstreaming Energy Efficiency in Urban Water and Wastewater Utilities

online // 24 June 2019

Course / Training

This event organized by the World Bank can be joined online via WEBEX. To join the event, please contact Clementine Stip (cstip@worldbank.org).

The event will take place on 24 June, 12:30 - 14.00 (Washington D.C. time, UTC-7).

Water production, distribution and treatment in Water and Wastewater Utilities (WWUs) are energy-intensive activities. International experience shows that electricity costs can range from 33 to 82 percent of non-labor operating costs of WWUs, and cost reductions of 20 to 40 percent are feasible through improved efficiency. Improving energy efficiency not only reduces energy costs, thereby improving the WWUs’ cost recovery, operational performance, and creditworthiness, but also reduces local and GHG emissions and complements water loss management activities.

This BBL aims to provide information and resources to help operations staff to integrate energy efficiency components in their operations. It will discuss typical energy efficiency measures in WWUs, barriers that have prevented implementation of such measures, and how to overcome them, and the key steps required to develop an energy efficiency component in water sector infrastructure projects – starting with identifying energy efficiency opportunities, selecting implementation models, and identifying financing options. Furthermore, a set of materials to support task teams developed jointly by the Water GP, GWSP, Energy GP, and ESMAP will be presented, including: (i) Guidance Note on Mainstreaming Energy Efficiency in Urban Water and Wastewater Utilities, (ii) website with materials on energy efficiency in WWUs, and (iii) checklist to help screen water operations for energy efficiency opportunities.

A modern utility, a diverse workforce: lessons from gender assessments in three utilities of the Danube region

WEBINAR // 11 March 2019

Course / Training

Around the globe, an increasing number of private and public companies are realizing that promoting gender equality in the workplace is good for business and development. In the Danube region, utilities often face a predominantly male and sometimes aging workforce. However, gender gaps in tertiary education including in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are closing. For the water sector, creating an environment with equal opportunities for men and at all levels of responsibility and an inclusive work culture should thus be an integral part of every utility’s modernization process.

Over the course of 2018, the Danube Water Program and the World Bank Global Water Security and Sanitation Partnership collaborated with three pioneering utilities in the Danube region to take a closer look at gender equality in their workplace. Brasov Regional Water Utility in Romania, the Prishtina Regional Water Utility in Kosovo and the Tirana Water Utility in Albania undertook gender assessment, using the methodology of the EDGE Certified Foundation. In Brasov and Tirana the analysis also looked at the age profile of utility staff.

The assessment focused on various areas, including i) a gender balance at all levels of the organization; ii) a solid framework of policies and practices to ensure equitable career flows for both women and men and iii) an inclusive culture as reflected in employees’ high ratings in terms of career development opportunities, and iv) for Brasov utility, an assessment of equal pay for equal work.The objective of the webinar is to increase knowledge and awareness and inform a dialogue on how to understand and narrow gender gaps in water utilities through inclusive human resource management practices. In this webinar, senior utility representatives will share the methodology, results and recommendations of the assessment and their reflections on actions that utilities could take to enhance gender equality on the utility floors.

Agenda:

* Introduction by chair, Susanna Smets, Sr. Water Supply and Sanitation Specialist, World Bank

* Speaker Ms. Evis Gjebrea, Deputy Director, Tirana Water Utility.

* Speaker Mr. Teodor Popa, Chief Financial Officer, Brasov Water Company

Course / Training

IAWD Coordinator, Mr. Philip Weller, welcoming TOT participants at the Water Supply and Sewerage Company in Korca, Albania

In 2016, the International Association of the Danube River Catchment Area (IAWD), under the support of the Danube Water Program, outlined a long-term strategic program for capacity building in the water supply and sewerage sector in the Danube region under the branded name, Danube Learning Partnership (D-LeaP).

“Commercial Efficiency in Water Supply and Sanitation Utilities” is one of the D-LeaP Programs that the Water Supply and Sewerage Association of Albania (SHUKALB) and the Water and Wastewater Works Association of Kosovo (SHUKOS) have jointly to undertake as a  HUB*.  This capacity building Program is one of the building blocks of the training programs of D-LeaP, targeting a defined set of processes within water utilities operating in the Danube Region.

The overall objectives of the Commercial Efficiency Training Program are:

  • To create a practical knowledge sharing program that will support water utilities operating in the Danube Region in the formulation and implementation of individual programs to strengthen their commercial performance.
  • To facilitate the creation of an enabling environment for continuous and sustainable delivery of this knowledge sharing program in localized regions of the Danube Region, through qualified trainers, who can deliver the program in their local language.
TOT Expert Trainer, Philip D. Giantris, during the workshop in Korca, Albania

TOT Expert Trainer, Philip D. Giantris, during the workshop in Korca, Albania

The first Training of Trainers Workshop of the Commercial Efficiency Program was organized on 26-28 April, at the Water Supply and Sewerage Company of Korca WSS, Albania.  The training was attended by participants from three (3) HUBs under the Program, which were: SHUKALB/SHUKOS, Association of Public Service Providers of Macedonia (ADKOM) and the Water Supply and Sewerage Company of Brasov, Romania (APA Brasov).  The preparation of all the training materials and the conduct of the ToT Workshop were done by Valu Add Management Services, a private company member of SHUKALB, contracted by IAWD under D-Leap.  Three expert international trainers that delivered the training included Philip D. Giantris from Albania, Radoslav Russev from Bulgaria, and Bambos Charalambous from Cyprus.

The three (3) day ToT Workshop covered topics such as:

  • Linking Commercial Efficiency to Business Planning
  • Current Performance Assessment Based on Performance Indicators with Focus on Commercial Efficiency
  • Defining Commercial Efficiency Strategic Goals
  • Water Demand Analysis
  • Defining Performance Improvement Action Plans to Achieve Commercial Efficiency Targets
  • Organizational Structure and Staffing Efficiency
  • Operations and Maintenance Budget
  • Capital Expenditure and Investment Forecast
  • Determining Total Revenue Needs and Tariff Strategy
  • Challenges in Commercial Efficiency Implementation
  • Monitoring, Reporting and Corrective Actions

During the first two days of class room training, the participants were engaged in a parallel, practical training exercise related to completing a system Water Balance and on Unpaid Debt Analysis and Recovery.  On the third day of the training, the participants, were hosted by several members of the Korca utility staff to see and experience, first hand, how a modern, Smart Meter system has been installed in Korca, and the benefits of its operations. They learned about the unique features of the meters, which they say actually being installed at a customer location; how meter data is transmitted from each meter to the central Customer Service Center, with no need for meter readers; and how the data is then analysed and downloaded to produce a bill for the customers.

The ToT workshop was a success, for the fact that participants received all the necessary information and training, qualifying as future trainers for the staff of the water supply and sewerage companies in their respective countries.  Valu Add Management Services will continue to assist them on this process.

SHUKALB would like to thank the Water Supply and Sewerage Company of Korca for its great support in making their facilities and its talented staff available for both the classroom and field training.

Course / Training

The course intends to analyze economic regulation of water and sanitation services and urban waste management from different perspectives and to explore the peculiarities of centralized and local allocation of regulatory tasks in relation to the nature of the service, specific policy objectives (consumer protection, equity, environmental targets, efficiency …), the historical and cultural background, the relationship between different actors and stakeholders, the influence - when relevant - of international actors like international organizations and financial institutions. The existence of multi-level systems of regulation will be also analyzed as an emerging trend. The course final aim is to provide participants with a broader overview on the objectives of regulation and with some hints to evaluate on a case-by-case basis what are the most suitable instruments and what is the best layer of intervention for a sound regulation: national, local or multi-level. That is why frontal lessons will be accompanied by the presentation of specific case studies and by interactive working groups.
