BPMA works with Energy Managers Association to develop better pump understanding

Pumps and their associated systems are huge consumers of electrical energy. So with the drive for improved energy efficiency across all industry sectors, as demanded by the ‘Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme’ it is essential that this influential group of ‘non-pump experts’ gain a good understanding  of the potential energy savings that are available within their respective pump systems.

The guide will ensure that the pump industry, and specifically BPMA member companies, are well represented when energy reduction strategies are identified and implemented, as part of company-wide energy audits.  It will be launched at the EMA’s annual event EMEX (Energy Management Exhibition), which takes place on 11-12 November in London.

“The payback on pumps is one of the quickest wins for energy managers, so it is somewhat surprising how often this simple measure is overlooked," says Lord Redesdale, CEO of the EMA.

"The EMA, in association with the BPMA, is producing this buyers guide to help energy managers not only assess the savings they could make on pumps, but also which questions they should ask to make sure the system they install is the best match for their needs.”
