WHY ENERGY OPTIMISATION?
Energy optimisation of your pump system reduces energy consumption and saves you money.
Taking an overview of a pump’s lifecycle cost, the purchase price makes up only 5%, service and maintenance just 10% and a huge 85% is energy costs for running the pump. For Grundfos, energy optimisation through an intelligent system approach is the way forward to create greater energy efficiency.
Our experience indicates that two thirds of all pumps installed today are inefficient and use up to 60% too much energy. Therefore replacing conventional pumps with Grundfos iSOLUTIONS can lead to significant savings at your facility. Replacing inefficient pumps worldwide, we could reduce global electricity consumption by 4% – equivalent to the annual energy use of 1 billion consumers.
DON’T ACCEPT PUMP SYSTEM INEFFICIENCY, DEMAND GRUNDFOS ENERGY CHECK
The Grundfos Energy Check is the best and most cost-effective way to start finding out how much you can save on your operating costs. It is an analysis carried out by skilled Grundfos personnel who calculate the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of your existing pumps.
The analysis will show if there are savings to be made by switching to more energy-efficient Grundfos iSOLUTIONS. You will get a detailed Energy Check report including a life cycle cost analysis and recommendations for optimising your pump system.
What is the ecodesign directive?
In 2009, the European Parliament and Council passed a directive definingecodesign requirements for energy related products (ErP).
It places high demands on the efficiency levels of a wide range of products and its aim is to secure energy supply and reduce energy consumption across the European Union (EU).
These requirements came into force in 2013 and in January 2015 were tightened further. Among many other devices, these latest changes apply to water pumps and electric motors.
The efficiency requirements for glandless standalone circulators and glandless circulators integrated in products will increase from 1st August 2015.
