Abstract: For the present and the near future, European plan for energy consumption mitigation dedicates a consistent chapter to electrical motors energy labeling, as a measure of energy efficiency and environmental friendliness of these equipments. The most adequate model for the pumps energy labeling approach seems to be a deepening particularization of the general installation and buildings labeling, accepted at international level and covered by national and international regulations. The paper presents the method developed by the Romanian Cleaner Production Center in cooperation with Multigama ltd., the representative of KSB Pumps Group from Germany. The method emphases follow ups of energy efficiency savings improvement and environmental impact effects evaluation. There are considered the potential extension to the whole pumping system evaluation from the energy efficiency point of view. The method consider the specific “electrical motor”-“pump” operation characteristics and restrictions, the potential of flexibility of the system and energy mitigation limitations.
