Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change what plans he has to include the replacement of circulation pumps in proposals to enhance home energy efficiency. (263612)

A forthcoming implementing measure on circulators under the Ecodesign for Energy using Products (EuP) Framework Directive proposes stringent minimum efficiency standards for circulators from 2013. Our initial analysis of the Commission proposals suggests that such a measure would lead to significant energy savings. The measure is due to be voted on at a meeting of the Regulatory Committee on 27 March.
