Spotlight on NEMA





Spotlight: NEMA

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Motor and Generator Section established a NEMA Premium® energy-efficiency motors program to provide highly energy-efficient products designed to meet the needs and applications of users and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) based on a consensus definition of "premium efficiency" and use of the NEMA Premium® logo for premium products.

NEMA Premium® labeled electric motors will assist managers in optimizing motor system efficiency, reducing electrical power consumption and costs, and improving system reliability. It is estimated that the NEMA Premium® efficiency motor program would save 5,800 gigawatts of electricity. These savings translate to preventing nearly 80 million metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere over the next 10 years, or the equivalent to keeping 16 million cars off the road.
