The article reports on the decision of the Environment Agency to consider whether energy savings resulting from domestic water-efficiency measures should count towards water companies' Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) obligations in Great Britain. Trevor Bishop, head of water resource management at the agency, said the water savings likely to follow universal metering could cut annual carbon dioxide emissions by 1.1-1.6 million tonnes. The Environment Agency also published the results of research into the whole-life-cycle costs of water resources.
