NEMA Motor & Generator Section Announces Motor Efficiency Regulation Webinars

03/12/2015 9:00AMSign-up to receive press releases.
​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.

Individuals and organizations may register at no cost. If you would like to schedule a specific webinar date, contact William Hoyt, NEMA industry director, at 703-841-3211 or bill.hoyt@nema.org.

Currently scheduled webinars:
April 16, 2 p.m. EST
April 20, 10 a.m. EST

Registration information is forthcoming.
