[Equest-users] EUI info on sanitary lift stations

It also seems to me that EUI (energy/ft2 of building) is probably not an appropriate metric for this. The energy use is probably more dependent on how much stuff they move. Energy per ft3 (of 'stuff') might be more appropriate.

If it were me, I'd start my search with associated equipment reps - if anybody is aware of such studies or guidelines, I'd have to imagine some with the OEM's are in that circle.

Grundfos has a lifecycle cost calculation tool on their website for their lift stations, and I recall them pushing the efficiency of their equipment in their literature and presentations - you might try them specifically to see if they have performed any case studies of their own, or are otherwise aware of any broader annual energy consumption data.

Does anyone know of a source for EUI comparative data for municipal wastewater lift stations?
