Energy Efficiency

Designing pump systems to reduce energy consumption is one step toward greater sustainability.


Pump systems may account for 40% of industrial energy usage, but they don’t have to.

As part of HI’s mission to enable the adoption of pump systems that cut energy use, we manage an ecosystem of training, certification programs, and standards that work together to raise:

  • the credibility of the professionals designing and assessing pump systems 
  • the bar for pump system energy efficiency
  • awareness and adoption of high-performance, reliable and energy-saving pump technologies that generate long-term cost savings

Better Business, Better World. Are there millions of dollars in energy savings coursing through your pump systems? 

Industrial plant engineers and managers can find out more about the business case for energy-saving upgrades to their pump systems—and the positive impact of all that conserved energy. Below is a snapshot of HI’s recently released infographic.
