This paper demonstrates how deployment of an energy management plan, with limited investment, can provide reductions in pumping systems TCO while maintaining sustainability objectives. Any sound energy plan should take into account the following three steps:
1. Energy efficiency management
2. Asset management
3. Energy cost management
For the purposes of this paper, the scope of a pumping system will be defined as encompassing all related elements starting from the point of the electrical utility connection down to the point of end use. This paper will illustrate how energy management best practices can result in a 20% reduction in TCO and a return of investment (ROI) within 24 months.
