Description:

With a range of consultations, seminars, information materials, and in some cases direct mailings, the informationcampaign for energy optimisation of existing pump systems and energy-optimised construction of new pumpsystems in trade and industry is directed at companies from trade and industry, suppliers, service providers, anddisseminators such as energy agencies and industry associations.

The consultations show thatconsiderable potential savings are available in both SMEs and large companies and that energy efficiency improvementspay dividends irrespective of the sector in which a company operates.
