ABSTRACT
This article deals with energy saving methods and renewable energy sources which it is possible to use at drinking water treatment plants and at water treatment plants for swimming pools. At water treatment plants there are the main possibilities in energy savings in the water treatment processes which can be enabled by optimisation of the treatment process or reconstruction where different technology or more effective devices are used. Very important part is the use of small hydropower stations at the water treatment plant or the use of renewable energy sources for heating. At water treatment plants for swimming pools the same principles of energy savings methods can be used but there are also other possibilities. One of them, the use of heat pump for warming the water for swimming pool is discussed in this article. An example of airsource heat pump which uses a waste heat from an engine room for warming the water for a swimming pool is presented and energy savings are evaluated.

Keywords: energy saving, water treatment, swimming pool, heat pump
