The National Electrical
Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Motor & Generator Section will host a
series of webinars in April related to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE)
motor regulation, which takes effect on June 1, 2016.
DOE recently amended Section
431 of the federal energy code covering the efficiency of electric motors. The
NEMA Motor & Generator Section created a presentation detailing how
coverage of electric motors will change in the new regulation. The section’s Energy
Management Committee Chairman Rob Boteler and Immediate Past Chairman John
Malinowski have teamed up—with input from other section members and NEMA staff—to
explain the impact of this amendment to end users and OEMs in the U.S.
The amendment will affect
most motors from one to 500 horsepower sold in the U.S. The regulation has
passed all necessary process points within DOE and will go into effect with no
additional modification or change. The amendment offers clearer product
descriptions and definitions, which make it easier to enforce DOE regulation.
