The United States Department of Energy (US DOE) has mandated that certain pump categories must meet a minimum energy conservation standard. A new performance metric, Pump Energy Index - PEI of 1.00 or less, is required to comply with the standard. The deadline for compliance is January 27, 2020. More information can be found at the Hydraulic Institute website and FAQ page.

A summary with equipment class definitions and images can be found at this informational website.
