Van Meer informs about the new classification for energy-efficient asynchronous motors!
In Europe, more than 65% of industrial energy consumption comes from electric equipment. The EU has identified energy efficiency as a “key priority” to increase its competitiveness in a globalized world. Due to the immense energy savings, the EU sees opportunities to save energy on three-phase motors on a structural basis.
The new regulation for the minimum efficiency of electric motors and frequency converters was therefore approved in October 2019. This new government decree replaces the old regulation (EC) 641/2009.
