Content on this webpage is intended to support utilities in the development and implementation of pump-focused incentive programs. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe and receive up-to-date data on approved energy efficient pump models on the Energy Rating Database for use as a qualified product list.
The Energy Rating Database provides a list of over 9,400 energy efficient commercial/industrial pump products within the scope of the energy conservation standard developed by the U.S. Department of Energy. Utility incentive program administrators and program implementers can subscribe to directly receive up-to-date pump data for use as a qualified product list by sending your request to email@example.com. Click download for a sample of the pump data that is provided.
Outlines how the training’s provided by Pump Systems Matter™, Pump Systems Optimization (PSO) Pump Systems Assessment Professional (PSAP), can provide essential expertise to a variety of audiences that work with pump systems in varying capacities.
Discusses the technical background of pump efficiency programs and an overview of program strategies to consider when initiating new programs.
Gives a brief description of profile pump system users and their motivations. Utilities can use this information to understand the market and to target programs, marketing and rebates to the appropriate market sectors.
Contains and overview of pump energy savings calculations and measure identifiers, and provides all technical data necessary to do so.
Contains overview of circulator pump energy savings calculations and measure identifiers, and provides all technical data necessary to do so.
Pump Energy Index (PEI) and Energy Rating (ER) are both metrics that describe comprehensive, system-level, comparable energy performance of pumps, including bare pumps, pumps equipped with motors, and pumps equipped with motors and drives.
This document can be used by utilities to accurately tailor talking points regarding pump efficiency and to address the needs and values of various key stake holders.
This on-demand webinar is free to download and presents opportunities and resources available for energy efficient pump incentive programs.
Pump System Training and Certification Drive Savings. The Pump Systems Assessment Professional (PSAP) case study was was funded by a utility as part of their demand side management (DSM) rebate program. The audit focused on ensuring efficient operation and minimizing wear that could cause increased electrical costs, maintenance costs and potentially reduce the pumps’ lifespan.
Pump System Training and Certification Drive Savings. This document summarizes best practices and key lessons learned for promoting the most efficient products, working with pump market actors, developing marketing materials, and promoting new technology like *Smart Pumps.
The Pump Savings Calculator is a tool that allows a user to calculate Life Cycle Energy and Cost Savings associated with a specific pump installation, incorporating impacts beyond Energy Savings and Pump Cost. This free calculator is a macro-enabled excel tool that is designed for users to calculate the difference in Life Cycle Costs associated with purchasing and installing efficient pumping systems, when compared to an installation with a lower Energy Rating (ER).
HI’s Circulator Savings Calculator is a tool for users to learn about the potential energy savings and financial payback from the selection of efficient circulators. The savings are based on publicly available data at er.pumps.org, where listed pumps have been tested in certified labs and their performance certified in the database.
