Nowadays, as many companies and organizations are getting more concern about the environment. There is an indication that many business owners are implementing environmentally friendly behavior as an important part of their corporate strategy.
The simplest strategy, yet provides considerable result, is called "Energy Saving", it would not only save the environment by the reduction of CO2 emissions, but financially the company gains the advantage from the reduction of operating cost.
Grundfos as one of the ‘Go Green’ pioneers in the world, is always working to develop solutions that are environmentally friendly by focusing on energy-efficient products. One of the energy saving program, promoted by Grundfos is "Boost Energy Optimization” or commonly known as “BEO".

Energy Check is a free offer that gives the customers an option of replacing their old constant speed pump with energy-efficient pumps. Grundfos experts will visit the customer and make a survey of non-intrusive pump based on all the data that exists in the system owned by the customers.
After all supporting variables are recorded, the customer will get a comprehensive report containing estimates of energy usage and financial savings that can be obtained should customer decided to replace with new energy-efficient pumps. Energy Check is also a proper way to identify targets for more advance Pump Audit process.
