Downers Grove, Illinois — Grundfos Pumps Corporation is pleased to announce that all Grundfos and PACO branded products sold in the U.S. currently meet or exceed the Energy Conservation Standards for clean water pumps set forth by the U.S. Department of Energy. Test facilities located in Brookshire, Tex. and Bjerringbro, Denmark have been audited and approved by the Hydraulic Institute to ensure that test procedures and equipment comply with DOE and HI 40.7 standards.
The new efficiency standards set forth by the U.S. DOE are expected to reduce energy consumption significantly, with an estimated 25 percent of pumps currently sold on the market not meeting the new requirements. Beginning Jan. 27, 2020, all pumps sold in the U.S. that are within scope will be required to be labeled with a PEI rating that meets the new standard.
