Efficiency and Optimization of Pumps and Pump SystemsCosts & Benefits
|Energy Savings Potential||
The installation of newer, higher-efficiency pumps typically leads to pump system energy savings of 2% to 10% (Kramer et al., 2009. p.68)
Optimization of design of pump systems have shown energy savings up to 10 to 17% (Kramer et al., 2009. p.68).
US DOE estimates that with basic pump system improvements 6 300 GWh of electricity can be saved in Pulp and Paper mills of the US (Kramer <em>et al.</em>, 2009. p.66).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
Energy savings at the mill were achieved with an investment cost of $123,500. The payback period was 17 months.
