Abstract [en]

Facing the world challenges of energy crisis and global warming, Ecodesign Directive is one of themost effective action plan developed by the European Commission (EC) to move towardsustainability. The directive aims to establish new implementing measures and regulation forEnergy-Using-Products (EuPs) and Energy-related-Products (ErPs), which targeting on productenergy efficiency as well as reduce environmental impacts.Under this Directive, preparatory studies of Lot 28 and Lot 29 are launched to focus on water andwastewater pumps that are widely used and have a great energy saving potential. EcodesignMethodology is applied in the studies to assess the technology development together with theconsideration of human, social and economic constraints.This report provides the main pumps’ market data and summarizes the results from the life cycleassessment (LCA). The outcome of EcoReport analysis on 18 base-cases concluded that theEcodesign implementation measures should focus on the use phase, which has the highestimprovement potential. While considering the consumer adaptability, economy impact andtechnical feasibility, the possible policy option could be the cutoff of 10% worst pumps in Europewithin 3 years. The energy saving on pump products will significantly reduce the total energyconsumption in Europe and enables the achievement of the EU 2020 target.
