U.S. Department of Energy Releases “Framework” Document on Pump Efficiency Rule-making

06.02.2013

The Hydraulic Institute, leading the efforts of the pump industry in North America to address the U.S. DOE pump efficiency rule-making, announced to its members the availability of the long-anticipated DOE “Framework” document from the United States Department of Energy on a pump efficiency rule-making.

This 126 page document, as noted by DOE is designed “to explain the relevant issues, analyses, and processes it anticipates using when considering new energy conservation standards for commercial and industrial pumps.” The U.S. DOE, the document noted, “is planning to conduct in-depth technical analyses in the following areas: (1) engineering, (2) energy use, (3) equipment price, (4) life-cycle cost and payback period, (5) national impacts, (6) manufacturer impacts, (7) emission impacts, (8) utility impacts, (9) employment impacts, and (10) regulatory impacts. DOE will also conduct several other analyses that support those previously listed, including the market and technology assessment, the screening analysis (which contributes to the engineering analysis), and the shipments analysis (which contributes to the national impact analysis).”

HI’s Pump Efficiency Expert Team (PEET) and the HI Board will be meeting in Ft. Myers, Florida during the Institute’s upcoming Annual Meeting, from February 7 – 12, 2013, to work on HI’s responses to the DOE document.
