BPMA and EMA to develop better pump understanding

The BPMA has announced that it will be working with the Energy Managers Association (EMA) on the production of a ‘buyers guide’ specifically formulated for energy managers, facilities managers, estate managers and procurement teams.

It is now well documented, and universally understood, that pumps and their associated systems are huge consumers of electrical energy. With the drive for improved energy efficiency across all industry sectors, as demanded by the ‘Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme’ it is essential that this influential group of ‘non-pump experts’ gain a good understanding  of the potential energy savings that are available within their respective pump systems.

The guide will ensure that the pump industry, and specifically BPMA member companies, are well represented when energy reduction strategies are identified and implemented, as part of company-wide energy audits. It will be launched at the EMA’s annual event EMEX (Energy Management Exhibition) which takes place on the 11 and 12 November at ExCeL, London.

Attendees, which include representatives from the UK’s largest organisations, those primarily governed by ESOS in terms of energy audits, and which by definition are heavy pump users, will be looking to manufacturers and suppliers of pumps and related technologies for energy reduction solutions.  The event offers an ideal environment at which to launch and promote the important reference material.

Lord Redesdale, ceo of the EMA, said: “The BPMA’s attendance at EMEX shows the importance of pumps in the list of energy saving devices our members can use to reduce their companies energy use. The payback on pumps is one of the quickest wins for Energy Managers, so it is somewhat surprising how often this simple measure is overlooked.

“The EMA, in association with the BPMA, is producing this buyers guide to help Energy Managers, not only assess the savings they could make on pumps, but also which questions they should ask to make sure the system they install is the best match for their needs.”

Steve Schofield, director and ceo of BPMA, added: “We are thrilled to be working with EMA on this initiative as it further demonstrates our commitment to the drive for improved energy efficiencies across all pump systems, and to ensuring that all those individuals with responsibility for energy use reduction, have a core understanding of the impact that pumps can have on a company’s overall energy consumption. This undertaking also serves to put BPMA member companies, their products, their engineering skills and their business credentials at the heart of good energy efficiency practice.  In essence, if energy managers need help and guidance with their pump systems, this Buyers Guide and the wider BPMA membership will provide that support.“
