  • HPWH Study

    Heat Pump Water Heaters Achieve Significant Peak Reduction and Energy Savings

    Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has teamed up with Bonneville Power Administration, Portland General Electric and other Northwest utilities to study the load shifting and #energyefficiency potential of heat pump water heaters. The results demonstrate that 90% of evening peak load power can be reduced by switching from uncontrolled electric resistance water heaters to connected heat pump water heaters, while reducing risks for utilities as well as costs to consumers.

  • Pump

    Characterizing the market for smart pumps

    This study considered small horsepower energy-efficient pumps, or “smart pumps": packaged systems consisting of a pump, variable speed drive and integrated controls. The report discusses how the alliance can continue to shape the market through activities such as documenting smart pump performance, providing targeted training to supply chain actors, and supporting increased communication among and between supply chain actors.
