Some months ago, the PIA wrote and submitted a proposal to Standards Australia to have the International Standard ISO/ASME 14414:2019 Pump system energy assessment adopted as an Australian Standard.
Members of Standards Australia committee ME-030 were advised and, in late November, Standards Australia advised that the project has been approved and a project working space has been created.
Already adopted by Britain, Europe and America, the scope of “this International Standard provides a method to assess pump systems, to identify and quantify pump system energy consumption reduction opportunities and reliability improvement opportunities.
It gives a common definition for what constitutes an assessment for both users and providers of assessment services. Its objective is to provide clarity for these types of services which have been variously described as energy assessments, energy audits, energy surveys and energy studies.
This International Standard is expected to contribute to decreased energy consumption and consequently to decreased carbon footprint”.
