BRAMMER WELCOMES NEW EU EFFICIENCY STANDARDS FOR ELECTRIC MOTORS

Brammer, the leading pan-European distributor of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, has welcomed the European Commission’s recent agreement on draft regulations for mandatory minimum efficiency standards for industrial electric motors. It is estimated that these regulations that could lead to a European wide reduction in energy consumption by 2020 equivalent to the entire annual energy usage of Sweden, equating to an annual reduction of 63 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.    

Motors account for around 65% per cent of electricity used by industry in Europe and the new regulations could provide a sizeable contribution to overall energy reductions, with industry alone currently representing 40.9% of total electricity consumption across the EU 27.
