PARSIPPANY, N.J. – The Hydraulic Institute (HI) and the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Industrial Technologies have signed an Allied Partner Agreement in which the two organizations will collaborate on initiatives that promote improved pumping-system energy efficiency among pump manufacturers and end users. By HI and DOE joining forces, those companies willing to promote energy efficiency can do so more easily, making the best use of HI’s and DOE’s unbiased information, programs and tools.

“Many companies do not invest in energy efficiency for a variety of reasons. This may be because these projects compete for capital with other corporate and plant priorities, the projects are undervalued, or the energy-saving opportunities are not recognized,” explained Eric Lightner, manager of BestPractices Program. “Our primary goal is to raise industry’s awareness of how new technology and best management practices can increase energy efficiency and productivity while bolstering profits and shareholder value. In this way, we hope to raise the bar for the pumping industry, making energy efficiency not just a widely accepted business strategy, but the industry norm.”
