HI 40.5 Program Guideline for Energy Rating Program


The Hydraulic Institute (HI) Energy Rating (ER) Program Guideline defines the requirements to participate and list pumps in the HI Energy Rating Database. The program guideline establishes a standard method for determining an ER value and a method to estimate energy usage for pumps within the defined pump equipment categories. The ER metric can be used by utilities and energy program administrators as part of a program to provide incentives. This program uses the DOE energy conservation standards for pumps (10 CFR 431 Subpart Y – Pumps), which identifies pump equipment categories and baseline performance for pump categories within the scope.

Any organization that manufactures, sells, packages, or distributes pump(s) within the scope is eligible to participate in the Energy Rating Program per the terms in the program application.

This program guideline is offered as a freely downloadable document in PDF format from the Hydraulic Institute.

What’s New:

This program guideline supersedes the HI 40.5-2016 edition. Updates in the new edition include:

  • The definition for ‘pump equipment category’ was expanded to include SVIL, VT, RSHIL, and RSHES. The definition of ‘basic model’ was updated to align with the updated regulation.
  • References to the guiding standards were updated to reflect the final rule on the Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedure for Commercial and Industrial Pumps
  • Added motor type as additional data required for ER listing
  • Updated images of the ER labels.
  • Various editorial revisions for improved clarity
