  • Launched in 1996
  • Based on EPAct 1992 scope of motors:
  • Aligned with NEMA PremiumTM in 2001
    • For motors covered under EPACT
  • Forty-seven participants in 2006-7
    • Majority offer prescriptive programs for 1-200 hp motors
    • Custom programs for larger motors and motor systems
scope of covered products
Scope of Covered Products
  • CEE Specification
  • 1 – 200 Hp
  • Low-voltage
  • General-purpose
  • NEMA Premium Specification
  • 1-200 Hp
  • Low-voltage
  • General- purpose
  • ----PLUS----
  • 250 – 500 Hp
  • Medium-voltage
  • Special & definite purpose
major accomplishments in motors
Major Accomplishments in Motors
  • Revised CEE Premium-Efficiency Motor Initiative to include a guidance specification for large, low-voltage electric motors (250-500 hp)
  • Released the 2007 Motor and Drive Program Summary describing the program offerings of 47 CEE members

Available on CEE’s website:

  • Current motor research:
    • Impacts to programs of the recently enacted federal minimum efficiency standards for motors
    • Exploring medium-voltage, special and definite purpose motors
    • Exploring 50hz motors (most commonly found in Europe) given limited baseline information and industry proposed performance levels.
2008 priorities
2008 Priorities
  • Prepare for implementation of Energy Independence and Security Act
    • Anticipate motor standards’ impact on industrial market and on programs.
    • For example:
      • Develop best practice repair guidance for programs
      • Review energy performance and market readiness of advanced motor technologies
      • Develop consistent language to facilitate customer education
2008 priorities13
2008 Priorities
  • Monitor proposed tax credits for motors prior to the new standards going into effect.
    • Purchasers of qualified energy efficient motors would be allowed a credit in an amount equal to $15 per horsepower of qualified energy efficient motors placed in service by the taxpayer during the taxable year.
    • Potential implications:
      • Encourage end-use consumers to invest in premium efficiency
      • Encourage replacement rather than extend the life of inefficient motors
motor management motor decisions matter sm
Motor Management: Motor Decisions MatterSM
  • A national campaign designed to improve the way industrial motor repair/replace decisions are made by promoting the financial and performance benefits of sound motor management policies to industrial managers
    • Increase industry’s awareness of motor management opportunities
    • Increase demand for NEMA PremiumTM motors & best practice motor repair
    • Encourage the market to engage in motor planning
  • Collaborate nationally to enhance local effectiveness

what is the opportunity
What is the opportunity?
  • Current environment for broader and deeper energy savings is driving members to re-assess industrial energy savings in the process area and to identify program opportunities.
    • identifying cross-cutting, process-specific measures
    • targeting industrial sub-sectors
industrial sector energy use by sub sector
The refining, chemical, paper and metal industries together use 71% of total inputs of energy for heat, power, and electricity generation. Industrial Sector Energy Use by Sub-sector
emerging program models
Emerging Program Models

Sector-Specific Approaches

  • Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance is focusing on food processing and pulp and paper
  • PG&E and SCE are focusing on data centers, bio-tech, water treatment, agriculture, food processing, wineries and oil refining
  • NYSERDA is focusing on sector-specific strategies, such as hospitality, municipal water and wastewater and industry.
industrial process energy is an emerging opportunity for programs
Industrial Process Energy is an Emerging Opportunity for Programs
  • CEE members are coming together through the Industrial Program Planning Committee:
    • to provide a forum for members to share program strategies in the industrial sector
    • to tap into the collective experience of member industrial efficiency programs (Technical Assistance, Custom Projects, Demonstration Projects, SPC/Standard Offer)
    • to identify and prioritize industrial opportunities & resources (DOE, EPA)
    • to recommend program strategies, as appropriate
priorities for 200832
Priorities for 2008
  • Review member program needs and priorities in the industrial sector in order to understand where the greatest opportunities are for programs nationally
    • Continue to explore opportunities for an enhanced performance specification for distribution transformers (particularly low-voltage, dry-type)
  • Establish a framework to assess savings opportunities by industrial sub-sector and cross-cutting technologies (system, process, etc.)
priorities for 200833
Priorities for 2008
  • Assess available DOE and EPA research and resources that could potentially support member programs
    • Map DOE and EPA industrial program offerings to member priorities
    • Identify program initiatives aimed at particular industrial sub-sectors and/or process opportunities
    • Explore a process to accelerate market acceptance of newly developed industrial technologies
cee s c i high efficiency distribution transformer initiative
CEE’s C&I High-Efficiency Distribution Transformer Initiative
  • Launched in 1998, serves as a platform for programs to build demand for more efficient transformers in the commercial and industrial sector.
  • The initiative consists of four key components:
    • A voluntary low voltage transformer efficiency performance specification
    • Guidelines for using cost-of-ownership methods in transformer purchases
    • Awareness building
    • Incentives (where possible)
  • Energy Star began labeling low-voltage transformers soon afterwards.
the opportunity for an enhanced performance specification
The Opportunity for an Enhanced Performance Specification
  • The Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005) established federal minimum standards for low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformers which went into effect on January 1, 2007.
  • New standard is equivalent to the NEMA specifications supported by CEE and ENERGY STAR on a voluntary basis since 1998.
  • During the last few months of 2006 and early in 2007, a CEE subcommittee met to explore the development of specifications for dry-type, low voltage transformers based on the analysis developed by DOE during a transformer rulemaking process.
  • DOE rulemaking in process for medium-voltage products.
major accomplishments in distribution transformers
Major Accomplishments in Distribution Transformers
  • The CEE Distribution Transformers Committee has
    • reviewed DOE research on low-voltage, dry-type distribution transformers
    • explored the availability of products that exceed the new federal minimum standard.
  • The Committee is considering an enhanced specification for low-voltage products that will be vetted with industry later this year.
  • The Committee has also identified “super-efficient” performance level for distribution transformers that are not currently available on the market.
