Pump Up Your Energy Savings With Circulation Pumps

As the global focus on energy efficiency intensifies, here's why circulation pumps are the energy-saving solution that will revolutionise your building’s performance.


With the imperative to reduce both operational costs and carbon footprint, our clients are increasingly turning their attention to the energy consumption of circulation pumps. And it’s no surprise as to why, when you consider that pumping systems contribute to nearly 20% of the world's electrical energy demand.

A standard 7.5 kW pump can consume a staggering 65,700 kWh per annum when operating at full speed continuously. This energy consumption accounts for a significant portion—up to 90%—of the total cost of pump ownership.

In response to this critical challenge, many buildings have retrofitted variable speed drives to fixed-speed pumps, offering potential energy savings if properly configured.

But we know that maximum energy efficiency is achieved with pumps configured to adapt to the requirements of the system. These pumps leverage sensors measuring variables such as temperature or pressure, or utilise known performance data to regulate pump operation according to demand.

The demand for heating and chilled water in buildings can fluctuate significantly based on factors such as occupancy levels and outdoor temperatures. By dynamically adjusting pump speed in real-time to match demand, you can ensure optimum efficiency. Remarkably, a mere 10% reduction in pump speed can yield a remarkable 34% energy savings, due to the affinity laws.

Drawing from our experience and leveraging state-of-the-art technologies, we've already demonstrated the potential to achieve an astonishing 80% reduction in energy consumption compared to fixed-speed pumps. This significant advancement underscores our commitment to enhancing sustainability and efficiency in building operations.
