Pacific Institute Hosts First Training Webinar for Cost Effectiveness of Water Conservation and Efficiency Software

Description: CE2 Manual May 12, 2012, Oakland, CA: The Pacific Institute has developed the Cost Effectiveness of Water Conservation and Efficiency (CE2) Model to help evaluate the economic desirability of water conservation and efficiency measures and explore how costs and benefits can be shared among customers, water utilities, and other entities. Designed primarily for water utility staff, the model quickly and easily calculates financial metrics that are meaningful and readily understood by planners and managers and provides a common platform through which to discuss the costs and benefits of water conservation and efficiency. Additionally, it may be of use to consultants, non-governmental organizations, and others interested in water conservation and efficiency and sustainable management of water resources.

Join staff from the Pacific Institute for a free training webinar on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. PDT to learn how to use a new, free software application designed to help estimate the cost effectiveness of water conservation and efficiency measures. The Pacific Institute’s new CE² Model allows water utilities and others to quickly and easily evaluate the financial desirability of water conservation measures. Its output includes financial metrics that are meaningful and readily understood by planners and managers. During the hour-long session, Cost Effectiveness of Water Conservation and Efficiency: Free Software Demo and Training, developers Matthew Heberger and Heather Cooley will introduce the software, demonstrate its use, and answer questions.

Intended Audience: The primary audience for the CE² Model is water utility staff. Additionally, it may be of use to consultants, nonprofits, and others interested in water conservation and efficiency and sustainable management of water resources. The webinar is free and open to anyone. (Long distance charges may apply if you choose the call-in option.) Use of the CE² Model requires Windows and Microsoft Excel and Access 2003 or better.
