Press release date: November 26, 2013

ROSSLYN, Va., —The Department of Energy (DOE) proposed Monday a new rule to increase energy efficiency for electric motors.

According to DOE, the rule could save consumers up to $23 billion and cut emissions of carbon dioxide from electric motors by roughly 400 million metric tons over a 30-year span.

The efficiency standards proposed in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) balance the tradeoff of maximum feasible efficiency requirements against the challenges of manufacturing high-performance motors across numerous product classes and hundreds of design types.

NEMA’s Motor and Generator Section worked with energy advocates, among other partners, over the course of several years to submit a Motor Coalition Petition to DOE in August 2012. Much of the petition’s data and arguments were preserved in yesterday’s NOPR. NEMA is pleased with DOE’s careful consideration made in weighing the numerous concerns and comments submitted by advocates and industry to develop the NOPR.

NEMA will continue to explore the details of the NOPR on behalf of its members and will issue public comments in time for the late January 2014 deadline.

NEMA is the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers, founded in 1926 and headquartered in Rosslyn, Virginia. Its 400-plus member companies manufacture a diverse set of products including power transmission and distribution equipment, lighting systems, factory automation and control systems, and medical diagnostic imaging systems. Total U.S. shipments for electroindustry products exceed $100 billion annually.
