Severn Trent Water seeks new solutions to reduce energy costs

The water and wastewater company currently uses around 900GWh of electricity per year – which comes at a cost of £100m

Severn Trent is calling on businesses with innovative solutions that can help the water company reduce its energy costs in the future.

The water and wastewater company serves around eight million people across the Midlands and mid-Wales and currently uses around 900GWh of electricity per year – which comes at a cost of £100 million.

Severn Trent says despite being on track to be 50% self sufficient from its own renewable energy sources by 2020, which includes solar, anaerobic digestion, hydro, wind and food waste, more can be done to save on energy costs.
