Pump System Optimization & Assessments: Workshop and Webinar. On November 4th, 2015, a workshop hosted by MassDEP, MA DOER, Hydraulic Institute, National Grid, and Eversource, was held to provide in-depth instruction on the methodology and opportunities to increase energy efficiency in pumping systems.Pumping systems are amongst the highest energy consumers in drinking and wastewater operations and frequently offers one of the greatest energy cost savings opportunity.
Attendees learned how to assess and consider options to improve both efficiency and reliability of pumping systems. Energy assessments and various options for increasing efficiency and determining cost effectiveness were also discussed. Topics covered were: pump system optimization via assessments that identify, qualify and quantify energy savings opportunities through maximizing system performance. Speakers were: Hydropower Project Screening Tool. New Tool to Assess In-Conduit Hydropower Potential in existing Water Infrastructure Alden Research Laboratory, Inc. working on behalf of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) developed a screening tool for in-conduit (inside the pipe or channel) hydropower technologies with a focus on water infrastructure opportunities managed by municipalities or districts.
The screening tool enables users to complete a preliminary evaluation of hydropower generation potential at water supply and waste water treatment facilities. With facts about a specific system and location (such as pressure or head, and flow), a user will be able to estimate power generation potential and get some preliminary cost/benefit analysis results with the screening tool. The screening tool is a Microsoft Excel-based file, which can be opened with version 2007 or later. SOAR Hydropower.

To be maximized, a different fitness function should be defined within the optimization process, or a multiobjective approach could be used to account for both conditions.
A preliminary economic analysis for PATs installation was also developed, showing attrac- tive profits and capital payback period. Bh teuteberg. 3.2 All Web.
