Q&A with Grundfos

Jon Muldoon is  national business development manager for domestic building services

REI: What have you got planned for 2015?
JM: In 2015 one of our key focus areas is to support our customers by offering them the most advanced energy efficient products.  We have launched our Comfort range of hot water recirculation pumps, with the patented Autoadapt function, this allows them to only operate when required, saving energy and optimising water usage.

What do you see as the growth area in renewables? With the latest release of Eco funding from the government, along with the Green Deal, and both the domestic and commercial RHI, the increased uptake in renewable technologies providing heating and hot water will continue to grow throughout 2015. With increased public awareness of the availability of these alternatives to traditional carbon based fuels, and the associated environmental benefits , we are well placed to support this growth with our advanced products and their market leading energy saving features.

How is your company cutting its carbon footprint? As a company, Grundfos sets very high environmental standards – both locally and globally.  Reducing energy consumption related to our activities and reducing our customers’ energy consumption is one of the most important aspects in our effort to realise this ambition.

We have therefore committed never to emit more CO2 than we did in 2008 despite the growth in our turnover. As we plan economic growth at a 10+ percent level, we have a challenge!
