The Declaration reminds of the importance of the European industry, which employs over 34 million people in supply chains comprising hundreds of thousands of SMEs and larger suppliers. These need to be supported if the EU is to  remain a competitive global industrial power. The signatories call on the European Commission to reaffirm its commitment to reaching the target of 20% of GDP from industry. The Commission is also invited to propose an Action Plan to tackle the challenges that industrial sectors are facing.

Europump and Professor (retired) Bernd Stoffel (Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany) have published a handbook ‘Assessing the energy efficiency of pumps and pump unitsBackground and methodology’.

This handbook represents the decades-long effort of the Europump Joint Working Group on energy-using products. It was officially presented at the Europump General Assembly on 9 May 2015. Upon receiving the first book from the hands of Mr Carlo Banfi, Europump President, Professor Stoffel summarised for the audience that the work consolidates the research that Europump and Darmstadt University of Technology performed to prepare the calculations and methodology that underpin EU Ecodesign regulations. The book also touches upon the important roles of standardisation and the Semi-Analytical Model, which calibrates mathematical calculations with tests.

It is the first book available providing the background, methodology and assessment tools for understanding and calculating energy efficiency for pumps and extended products (pumps+motors+drives). Responding to new EU requirements for pump efficiency and US Department of Energy exploratory work in setting pump energy efficiency guidelines, this book provides explanation, derivation and illustration of Product Approach and Extended Product Approach methods for assessing energy efficiency. It surveys legislation related to pump energy efficiencies, provides background on pump and motor efficiencies, and describes the concept of the Energy Efficiency Index for circulators and single- and multi-pump systems.

The book is now available at Elsevier at this link. The price is EUR 90.95 (Europump members receive a discount of 30%).
