Ecodesign

The Ecodesign Directive (2005/32/EC revised by 2009/125/EC) sets ecodesign requirements for energy-using & related products. "It contributes to sustainable development by increasing energy efficiency and the level of protection of the environment, while at the same time increasing the security of the energy supply" (Article 2 of 2009/125/EC).

Pumps and circulators are in the scope. Europump members have been working hard to develop new technologies and products. Since the start of the Ecopump initiative, the European pump industry has shown a commitment to higher energy efficiency of its products. Europump has contributed to the development of the Regulation for circulators.
