Which Company Is Pouncing On Wastewater (Heat) Recovery? Is This The Next Big Thing?

What’s the market opportunity? Massive. Solar & wind energy have passed the tipping point, proving that the demand for renewable, energy-saving / recycling solutions is robust. It’s nearly impossible to overstate the strength of the green energy movement to reduce GHG, globally, at the residential & commercial building, corporate, local & federal levels.

IWS is to wastewater / sewage {heat} recovery, what grid-scale Energy Storage Systems are to Lithium-ion batteries, i.e. hugely important, potentially ubiquitous, with double-digit CAGRs as far as the eye can see. 

The proprietary, patent-pending technology produces tremendous results. Savings range from 30% to 70%+. Yet, cash savings is just the start. How about also seamlessly reducing one’s carbon footprint by using less energy & water? This factor is incredibly important, many entities targeted by IWS have explicit missions to reduce GHG emissions. IWS’s products & services represent a compelling, easy, cheap and fast way to achieve those goals.

Note, wastewater / sewage {heat} recovery both saves & recycles thermal energy, which is key. Switching from fossil fuel to renewable energy is awesome, but only conservation of energy is 100% efficient. Nothing beats using LESS energy, without diminished benefit.  

Why is the Investment Case in IWS a Strong One?

From an investor’s point of view, adoption of wastewater / sewage {heat} recovery methods by a wide range of users, would lead to the visibility of longer-term revenue. Predictable revenue & earnings allows for flexibility in the Company’s business plan. IWS is already operating under 3 different scenarios. First, it sells systems outright, and collects modest recurring revenue from routine maintenance. Second, it can Build, Own & Operate (BOO) systems to lock-in a portion of customer savings. Lastly, it can tap into long-lasting (20 years), government incentives, tax rebates & credits, a strategy being aggressively pursed in the UK.
