Pumps Efficiency Rating Utility Outreach and Support

Commercial energy efficiency programs have begun investing in non-lighting technologies, where opportunities for energy savings through innovation remain substantial. The Hydraulic Institute (HI) responded to this trend by creating an energy rating for clean water pumps that could help the market discern efficient equipment choices. However, the organization lacked the materials and outreach capabilities to support transformation of the pumps market. Cadeo built myriad tools for to support program development and promotional activities among utilities throughout the U.S., including marketing and training materials, case studies, and plug-and-play slide deck content. These materials help efficiency program sponsors construct effective incentive programs that take advantage of the savings opportunities in the pumps market. The Cadeo team also facilitated broad outreach efforts, introducing the diverse applications of HI’s Energy Rating program (http://er.pumps.org/ratings/home) to companies across the United States.
