Detail

This study is our first step towards reducing carbon emissions from our pumping stations. It is a detailed analysis of energy use and carbon emissions at a sample of eight pumping stations completed between December 2007and February 2008. The study assesses what carbon reduction measures are available, through more efficient use of energy or use of different technology, and how much the measures will cost. It also demonstrates a method of benchmarking, in which the performance of pumping stations can be compared in terms of how much carbon they emit per unit of water pumped.
