As usual, during MCE 2014 (18 21-March FieraMilano Rho), Assopompe organized a conference of particular interest to the industry.
ECODESIGN REQUIREMENTS IN PUMPS
What requirements are imposed by the European Commission today and what it will be in the near future?

This year the conference was organized in collaboration with EUROPUMP and then saw the participation of two speakers from the Boards of the work of our European Association.
The European Commission is, for several years, working on projects to improve the energy efficiency of pumps and pumping systems in accordance with Council Directive Energy Related Products (ErP) 2009 / 125 / EC (formerly EuP Directive 2005 / 32 / EC) .
Ecodesign requirements are imposed by the last 1 January 2013 for light water pumps and circulation pumps (Lot 11). New studies are being developed in the field of wastewater pumps and again in the field of light water pumps (Lot 28 & 29), in view of new future regulations in these sectors.
A new approach is being adopted in the new regulations by the European Commission: the 'Extended Product Approach (ie focus on the energy efficiency of the various components within the pumping system including pump, motor and controls).
In 2012 the introduction of the Energy Efficiency Directive (2012 / 27 / EU) requires all Member States the requirement to carry out energy audits in buildings and industrial processes. The Directive will require to carry out an energy assessment of the entire pumping process (system energy assessment). It is believed that this type of approach can bring significant energy savings even more.
We discussed all this with EURUPUMP experts who work closely with the European Commission, to ensure the achievement of energy savings in a sustainable way for users and manufacturers
