Fan and Pump Technology Overview and their Energy Saving Opportunities

COURSE NO: M09-002
Fan and Pump Technology Overview and their Energy Saving Opportunities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a technical and market analysis of pumps and fans as they pertain to commercial and residential buildings, as well as key conclusions regarding the R&D opportunities that can help achieve energy savings goals.


The Building Technologies Office (BTO) within the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) works with researchers and the industry to develop and deploy technologies that can substantially reduce energy consumption in residential and commercial buildings.


The course highlights an annual technical savings potential of approximately 2.6 and 0.63 quads of primary energy for fans and pumps, respectively, assuming 100% adoption of best-in-class energy efficient technologies in the U.S. for the applicable installed base.


Four R&D opportunity areas for fans and five R&D opportunity areas for pumps are identified that will help to achieve the required savings potential, and therefore, BTO’s energy savings goals. These key opportunities for R&D are primarily focused on systems-level controls and technological improvements such as motors.


This 9 PDH online course is applicable to HVAC, mechanical and electrical engineers, and professionals who are interested in learning more about fan and pump technologies and their energy saving opportunities.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the state and type of pump and fan technologies used in residential and commercial appliances, equipment, and systems
