With the market for standalone circulators in Europe due to change form 1 January 2013, Grundfos is already prepared with appropriate pumps. From that date the EU Directive on Energy Using Products will set new requirements for energy efficiency in domestic and light-commercial circulator pumps.

Grundfos Alpha2 and Magna circulators already meet the requirements.

The Alpha2, for example, runs on as little as 5 W, and over a million units have been installed since it was introduced in 2007.

The Magna for commercial-building applications was introduced in 2001 and uses up to 70% less energy than other standalone circulators.
