The article discusses the introduction of the Minimum Efficiency Index (MEI) for pumping equipment sold within the European Union. MEI outlines a minimum efficiency levels for pumping equipment. The minimum efficiency level is calculated at the best efficiency point (BEP), part load (PL) and over load (OL).
