The Quest for energy savings
Pumps currently account for 10% of the world’s electricity consumption. Most of the pumps in operation are, however, inefficient. In fact, two third of all pumps use up to 60% too much energy – so the global energy savings potential is enormous.
Water supply systems are among applications that often hold significant unrealised energy savings potential. Typical reasons for energy waste are worn or incorrectly sized pumps. So it makes sense to give your pumps an extra check from time to time to make sure they are not wasting energy and in turn money.
Grundfos’ online SP Energy Tool is an easy way to uncover your savings potential, and is ideal if you are looking for an instant indication of your savings potential. By entering a few pump data you will instantly be told whether your potential is high, medium or low. If you want a more thorough evaluation of your pump system Grundfos’ service professionals perform Energy Checks and Pump Audits.
