ABOUT THE SEMINAR

Water is one of the most essential natural resources. More and more businesses - both large and small, industries, institutions, utilities, cities and governmental agencies are looking for strategies to reduce water usage to their reduce costs and as a part of their larger sustainability plans. Implementing water-efficient technologies or techniques is often a team effort involving individuals with varied backgrounds, responsibilities and levels of expertise.

This comprehensive two-day instructional program is designed to help educate those who have responsibilities in the sustainable or utility efficiency field on best practices for maximizing results and understanding water efficiency basics. Attendees will learn technical and organizational strategies, including conducting a water efficiency site assessment, water billing, relevant terminology, federal, state and municipal mandates and policies, and water measurement and verification, along with water supply options and water balancing development.

The seminar is designed to serve as a preparatory training vehicle for the examination required to be completed by those interested in obtaining AEE's Certified Water Efficiency Professional (CWEP) certification. The seminar is also open to those who simply wish to benefit from the training provided, and do not wish to sit for the exam following the seminar.

By obtaining the CWEP certification, participants will gain industry and peer recognition by demonstrating their understanding of technical and operational water efficiency principles. The program also serves as a fundamental building block for additional individual professional development such as obtaining the Energy Efficiency Practitioner (EEP), Certified Energy Manager (CEM), Certified Sustainable Development Professional (CDSP) or the Business Energy Professional (BEP) designation.
