DOE's BestPractices Pumping System Assessment Basics E-LearningArchived Webinar
FEMP’s Industrial Facilities Initiative provided a training webinar on the DOE’s BestPractices Pumping Systems Assessment Basics on June 9, 2010.
The course highlighted pumping system assessment fundamentals and provided guidance for identifying system-level opportunities for saving energy in pumping systems.
A ‘live action’ demonstration of the DOE BestPractices software Pumping System Assessment Tool (PSAT) was conducted to enable participants to analyze different operating scenarios using actual field data to compare energy and cost savings to help optimize their pumping systems. Examples were demonstrated to show how a pump could be performing well within a system while the overall system was performing poorly.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Simplified Greenhouse Gas Emissions Calculator was also demonstrated to include emission reductions as part of the total benefits for a more energy efficient pumping system.
The Archived Training will remain available for viewing until December 31, 2010.

Please note the first 20 seconds of the archive has audio only, but the following slides will be shown with their corresponding audio.
The course begins with an overview of DOE’s Federal Energy Management Program and its goal to help sites meet the goals of Executive Orders and EISA; the technical portion will follow.
The Archived Training will remain available for viewing until September 30, 2010.
