By deciding to use energy efficient motors, you can improve the performance of your machinery and lower your energy costs, while at the same time having positive effects on the environment. ABB’s energy efficient motors are designed and labeled to comply with the international standards.
MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standards) for low voltage motors have played an important role in helping countries to meet their energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions targets. For motor users, MEPS have led to an overall increase in motor efficiency and made it easier to compare efficiency levels between manufacturers.
These benefits have prompted many countries around the world to adopt their own MEPS. However, the actual requirements vary between the different countries - please click the highlighted link to see for more information about the main regions and countries.
Wherever energy is used, energy can also be saved. In fact, improving energy efficiency is the most effective way to cut CO2 emissions. At ABB, we aim to keep the world turning, while saving energy every day.
