Overview

Motors use more than half of all electricity. This book outlines an approach for increasing motor and motor system efficiency through high-efficiency motors, optimized controls, improved component sizing and repair, better transmission hardware, and more comprehensive monitoring and maintenance.

In addition to explaining technical opportunities in language understandable to non-engineers, the book reviews what is known about the existing motor stock and its use, chronicles experience to date with drive power programs and policies, and offers recommendations for future efforts. Full application of the measures described can cut U.S. electricity demand by up to 20 percent, save motor users and utilities billions of dollars, reduce pollutant emissions, and enhance productivity.

The book was written by an interdisciplinary team of engineers, energy analysts, and program planners who collectively have over 50 years of experience in the energy efficiency field.
