Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure Accelerator

Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure Accelerator

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 stateandlocal@ee.doe.gov 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.

The Better Buildings Webinar Series

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

Featured Solutions

This toolkit helps water resource recovery facilities establish and implement energy management and planning by collecting best practices and innovative approaches used by wastewater facilities who partnered with DOE's Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure of the Future (SWIFt) Accelerator.
This fact sheet summarizes the key accomplishments and results from the Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure of the Future (SWIFt) Accelerator. The Accelerator produced many tools and resources supporting energy data management for wastewater operations, as well as planning, implementation, and financing for comprehensive energy efficiency and resource recovery projects.

Fact Sheet

The Better Buildings Sustainable Wastewater Infrastructure of the Future (SWIFt) Accelerator worked over three years with state, regional, and local agencies that were engaged with water resource recovery facilities in their jurisdiction to accelerate a pathway toward a sustainable infrastructure.

Guidance

The purpose of this document is to describe the benefits of energy data management, explain how it can help drive savings when linked to a strong energy management program, and provide clear, step-by-step guidance to wastewater treatment plants on how to appropriately track energy performance.
