Presentation Title:

The 9 Energy-Saving Focus Areas in Pump Systems – Summative Results from 43 Systems and Thousands of Pumps around the World

Track J: Industrial Energy Efficiency

Session J3: Industrial Energy Management

Day 3  10:00 am



Pumps consume 22% of global electricity motor demand; the most of all the motor driven energy systems. The overwhelming majority of pump systems have 15% – 50% energy savings available, making it one of the most, if not the most, impactful systems-areas to achieve net-zero energy efficiency targets globally. In this presentation, the audience are taken through the nine categorized areas to consider when performing Pump System Optimization audits.

Accompanying these nine energy savings opportunity areas, are feasibility results from personal audit experience from 43 recent industrial and utility pump systems, consuming over 500 GWh per year, from three continents. Additionally, researched energy management results from another 500 pump systems from various international sectors is shown. The average savings results of each of the opportunities are given, giving the audience real-life business cases of what one could expect on average when considering implementation of each one of these opportunities.

Participants are left with clearly implementable PSO instructions, low-cost/no-cost operational and energy efficiency measures, and rule-of-thumb energy saving quantification tips.
