China Motor Challenge
Electric Motor Systems Energy-Saving Challenge - Improving the Operating Efficiency of Chinese Electric Motor Systems
In the last decade China has become the powerhouse of the worldwide economy. With two digit economic growth rates, energy consumption has increased dramatically. Electric motor systems account for 60% of the total electricity consumption in China. The actual operational efficiency of electric motor systems is thought to be 10 - 30% below international best practice, depending on the industry.
The SWITCH-Asia project "Efficient Electric Motor Systems" assists hundreds of industrial users of electric motor systems in upgrading to high-efficiency motor systems. With upgrading electric motors systems the project aims to reduce energy consumption and cut CO2 emissions.
It promotes the market transformation to high-efficiency electric motors, and motor system components. Within 3 years the project plans to reach out to over 400 major industrial users of electric motor systems. By improving the operating efficiency of their systems, the users of electric motors can save about 1 million tons of CO2 emissions per year.
Duration: 11/2008 - 11/2011
Total budget: EUR 1,124,946 (EU Contribution: 80%)
