Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure Accelerator - Completed

The Sustainable Wastewater of the Future (SWIFt) Accelerator worked with water resource recovery facilities to accelerate a pathway toward sustainable infrastructure. SWIFt aimed to catalyze the adoption of innovative and best-practice approaches in data management, advanced technologies, and financing for infrastructure improvement. Partners sought to improve the energy efficiency of their participating water resource recovery facilities by at least 25% and integrate at least one resource recovery measure. 

SWIFt Phase 2: Energy Recovery

DOE is continuing SWIFt's efforts in the wastewater sector focused on energy recovery. Phase 2 is currently welcoming interested state, regional, and local agency and facility partners. Contact or click below for more information.

Customized Toolkit Training

DOE is offering customized training on the use and implementation of the Wastewater Energy Management (SWIFt) Toolkit to help more facilities set and achieve their energy efficiency goals. Get access to resources, networking, technical support, and recognition.

Join Upcoming Webinars

Dedicated to bringing you the latest actionable insights on today's energy efficiency landscape, the Better Buildings Webinar Series is a chance to explore the topics and trends that affect your organization with industry experts and your peers.
