Water Savings Initiative

Water Savings Initiative

The Better Plants Challenge has expanded its energy savings program to include water savings. The efficient use of water resources results in lower operating costs, more reliable water supply, and improved water quality. Additionally, since energy is required to transport and treat water, saving water saves energy. Nine Challenge partners are working with DOE to track water use intensity improvements and share successful strategies and solutions. Two partners—Cummins and UTC—have already met their water-savings goal and are working to sustain and expand their progress.
