IEC 60034-30-2: Efficiency classes for motors operated on variable frequency
The Working Group 31 meeting in May 2016 in Arlington VA, USA will clarify all pending questions. 
IEC 61800-9-2: Test methods and efficiency classes for converters and motors with converters
The Committee Draft for Vote (CDV) was accepted on 11 September 2015. The reference losses for converters remain unchanged. Also, no converter efficiency classes higher than IE2 will be introduced. A Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) has been prepared. 
ACEE draft guides for energy efficiency
The IEC Advisory Committee on Energy Efficiency (ACEE) met in Milwaukee WI, USA in April 2016. The Guides are mainly directed towards standard makers in TC2s that will be guided how to introduce energy eficiency into their specific field.
  • IEC Guide 118, Edition 1: Energy efficiency aspects inclusion in electrotechnical publications
  • IEC Guide 119, Edition 1: Preparation of energy efficiency publications and the use of basic energy efficiency publications and group energy efficiency publications.
The comments received on the draft Guides 118 and 119 have been reviewed. A CDV will be published in summer 2016. More information: www.iec.ch

Ecodesign updates from the European Union
  • Revision of fan directive 327/2011: a Fan Review has been prepared by VHK in March 2015. The last Consultation Forum meeting in Brussels was held on 30 April 2015, the revision is on track. The number of fan types will be reduced. A new level for fan efficiency, after the currently introduced requirements on 1 January 2015, will be introduced in 2020.
    More information: www.fanreview.eu/index
  • Revision of motor directive 640/2009: since the presentation of the final preparatory study by Anibal de Almeida et al. in 2014 and the Consultation Forum meeting in September 2014 no new document is currently available. The expansion of the scope to 0.12 kW up to 1000 kW seems accepted, also the inclusion of converter losses. The draft regulation is currently in the internal EC review process.
  • Revision of water pumps directive 547/2012: a final progress report on the revision and on the results from preparatory studies on pumps in Lot 28 and 29 was presented by VHK and Viegand Magøe in December 2015. A stakeholder meeting was held in February 2016 in Brussels.
    More information: www.ecopumpreview.eu/documents
  • Compressors: a first Working Document was presented to the Consultation Forum on 23 October 2014. A second technical study by VHK, expected to run until April 2017, is assessing the low pressure and oil free application ranges. A draft interim report was published on 31 March 2016.

Webinar 19 May: Energy efficient electric motor systems - learning from Indonesia
How to develop a policy framework for efficient electric motor systems? This webinar on 19 May 10 AM GMT will present the range of policies that are available to governments to encourage energy efficient electric motor systems, and how these apply to a developing country context such as Indonesia. Speakers:
  • Lachlan Cameron, Jeffrey Sipma, Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands
  • Maarten van Werkhoven, TPA advisors
 More information & registration: www.cdkn.org

A series of motor systems webinars
The 4E Electric Motor Systems Annex and the Danish Technological Institute held a series of six webinars on the platform 
www.leonardo-energy.org between October 2015 and February 2016.

All webinars are available on: www.motorsystems.org/webinars

US funding for R&D in energy efficient motors
The Energy Department announced up to USD 25 million in available funding aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied research & development, to develop the next generation of electric machines for industrial energy savings.

U4E country reports
United for Efficiency (U4E) created assessments for nearly 100 countries showing the potential benefits and savings of transitioning to higher efficiency for several products, including electric motors. U4E is a global effort supporting developing countries and emerging economies to move their markets to energy-efficient appliances and equipment under the United Nations Environment Programme.
