Abstract

The purpose of this project is to increase the energy efficiency of water infrastructure in Puerto Rico. This report contains technical and financial feasibility data regarding renewable energy systems and pipeline maintenance procedures. This data is followed by recommendations of cost-effective and environmentally-safe systems as well as maintenance procedures to be implemented. The report concludes with the social implications that will follow this implementation. The project team prepared this information for the Architecture and Engineering firm CSA Group, Inc., which will allow this company to promote energy-efficient practices to their clients through a brochure that the team provided at the conclusion of the project.
