Electric motors consume over 60 % of the energy used by U. S. industry. Since 1997 the DoE has been issuing rules and regulations to establish minimum efficiency standards for electric motors in order to reduce the energy consumed by U. S. industry. These rules have come in the form of minimum motor efficiency standards for integral horsepower, off-the shelf, unmodified 3 phase ac motors. Three levels of increased motor efficiency were issued over two decades. But in 2014, in consultation with industry and energy conservation representatives, it was decided that the reduction of energy consumption could be more effectively accomplished by broadening the type and number of motors coming under the regulation, rather than increasing the efficiency level on currently regulated motors.
