New education will need to be employed by essentially changing the electrical standards we have become so accustomed. The impact on changing regulations pushes new ways of operating right under our noses until the shift becomes normalized. The “Proposed Motor Efficiency Standards Will Lead to Big Electricity Savings” and change the way we think and use power day-to-day.
Electric motors in the 1 to 500 horsepower range consume about 50 percent of all the electricity used by industry in the United States. “That’s right: 50 percent. That’s why the issuance today of long-overdue proposed energy-efficiency standards for electric motors by the U.S. Department of Energy is particularly important news.What’s more, these proposed standards were set at levels supported by both motor manufacturers and efficiency advocates, including NRDC,” states Meg Waltner, Manager, Building Energy Policy, San Francisco, CA .
“Like recently proposed efficiency standards for walk-in freezers and coolers, commercial refrigeration equipment and metal halide lamps, these electric motor standards will take a big bite out of U.S. energy consumption. In fact, over 30 years, the motor standards will save about seven quads of energy— that’s roughly equivalent to 1 trillion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough electricity to power almost every home in the US for a year and over 30 years, they’re estimated to save consumers approximately $23.3 billion total. Add to that cumulative carbon dioxide reductions of nearly 400 million metric tons—about the same as taking 82.5 million cars off the road for a year—and you’ve got a pretty impressive package. That impact can be felt across the globe, where U.S. standards are influencing overseas manufacturers to improve the efficiency of their motors,” reports the Energy Collective.
But by proposing new efficiency standards today, the Department of Energy put the importance of electric motors into focus, offering American industry and consumers an opportunity to cut costs, save energy and minimize pollution.
The importance of these standard changes the U.S. culture on how to operate and why. As in Japan where buildings are shut by 5:00 pm for non essential work-use, turning off the majority of the power employs new standards on work hours and productivity.
As for many years it has been reported that the U.S. productivity is high despite production versus the trend to do more with less human capital does not necessarily correlate to higher productivity.
New electrical standards will impose new ethics, quality and resource alliance strategies to maximize the output provided within the given electrical power supply. Consider, the age of “mindful production” due energy stratagems.
