Roadmap to improvements
It also presents an ideal time to recall the pump industry’s early and continued contribution to energy savings, which has not only been significant to date, but also realistic and achievable in the short-term.
By way of example, water pumps have the potential of saving 50 TWh of electricity across Europe, which is equivalent to the output of five large coal-fired power plants, annually. Economic contribution
Even though the pump industry’s contribution to gross domestic product is smaller than other sectors, by comparison, the energy consumption of pumping systems is much higher. It ranges from 10-15% of the overall annual electricity production across Europe.
That is why the energy saving potential of pumping systems is extremely high at absolute level and why our pump manufacturers place a great deal of importance upon it. Energy...
