Water efficiency reduces water wastage and conserves water resources. It typically involves simple steps that can be implemented to existing buildings and properties. Using water efficiently will reduce operating costs and help ensure reliable water supplies today and for future generations.
Water use is closely linked to energy use. In fact, between 2-3% of the world’s energy is used to pump and treat water for people and industry. It takes a considerable amount of energy to deliver and treat the water we use every day. In addition, heating water for domestic and service hot water needs is usually a significant portion of any facility’s total energy consumption.
For these reasons, AKT Peerless provides benchmarking of water use and recommendations of water efficiency measures as part of our energy services. These services are typically part of our Building Energy Audits, but can also be offered as a standalone service depending on your requirements.
