According to a study, the efficiency of motors currently used by the Philippine industries can strongly be increased. Improvements do not consist only in motors replacement. 50% of motors are rewound periodically with a corresponding drop in efficiency of 5-10% at each rewinding. A significant share of the motors in place is also either undersised or oversised to compensate foreseen losses due to the low efficiency motors. The lack of proper sizing of motors leads to even lower efficiency and negatively impacts the life duration of the motors.
The project aims to increase energy efficiency of the electricityintensive industries and achieve reduction in electricity consumption, and to reduce contribution of industries in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Specifically, it aims to increase the deployment of more efficient electric motors and drive systems in Philippine industries.
The Way Forward
- Demonstrating the technical and financial feasibility and benefits of adopting HEMS through two pilot projects for sugar mills;
- Establishing two new private funding programs to facilitate access to financing for sugar milling, other electric motorintensive industries;
- Building up the capacity of commercial banks to evaluate HEM investment, especially regarding technology risk;
- Building up the capacity of energy service companies (ESCOs) and service providers to investigate and implement HEM projects;
- Increasing the capacity of project developers, SMEs and financier to get information, discuss and negotiate new business opportunities;
- Putting in place a supportive policy framework for HEMs investment.
