University campus has lessons to share

Grundfos Pumps

An energy check carried out by Grundfos Pumps on an 11 000-student campus at a university in the north west of England highlighted potential energy savings of over 64 MWh a year, with a return on investment of just three years. The savings were achieved by exchanging a number of circulators for more efficient models.

There was also a signification reduction in CO2 emissions.

Following the success of this project, the university is looking at reviewing other aspects of its heating, cooling, water-supply and water-boosting pumps requirements.
