A UAE investigation into energy and water efficiency barriers
“Many important electrical devices and equipment are installed in homes, buildings and factories, and form parts of critical infrastructure. Pump technology forms a vital part of this infrastructure and enables the systems essential in providing clean drinking water, chilled and hot water for air-conditioning, removal of waste water and fire protection, to name a few.
It is worth noting that 10% of the total global electricity is consumed by pumps, and switching to the latest technology could reduce electricity consumption by 4%. In addition smart technologies such as optimized controls, censors and monitoring devices can further reduce consumption by up to 60%. As a global leading provider of advanced pump solutions, Grundfos has a keen interest and responsibility in supporting energy efficiency by applying its latest trendsetting technologies. Offering global sustainable solutions that improve quality of life for people and care for the planet, is an integral part of Grundfos core values and is engrained across the business.
The research conducted by EWS-WWF in the UAE on energy and water efficiency barriers and solutions in the private sector gives us additional valued insight in what we can do to help accelerating energy efficiency across the country, not only from a technology perspective but in sharing important knowledge and best practices!”
