Ross Provides Ongoing Support to the EUM Initiative in Support of Resilient and Sustainable Water Sector Utilities
Ross Strategic has supported the Effective Utility Management (EUM) initiative since its inception in 2006. Earlier this year Ross Strategic supported the update and re-release of the EUM Primer document, which debuted in January 2017. Since January, Ross has led the development and facilitation of a series of EUM-based webinars and workshops for utilities across the nation. These trainings are designed to help water and wastewater utilities implement EUM, moving from reactive “crisis of the day” management to proactive planning, improving the resilience and sustainability of the utilities and the communities they serve.
City Energy Project Evaluation
From August 2016 to January 2017, Ross Strategic conducted a mid-term evaluation focused on the City Energy Project’s (CEP) interim outcomes as it works to advance energy efficiency in buildings within cities in the US. The evaluation, commissioned by the Kresge Foundation, focused on developing practical and actionable operational insights for program implementers and funders as CEP begins work with a new group of cities. The evaluation is helping inform how CEP’s engagement thus far can inform its emerging work, how to effectively leverage learning from work with these cities to advance energy efficiency across the US, and how CEP can effectively fulfill its functions as a “backbone” for supporting energy efficiency over the long term.
