Motors: A Performance Opportunity Roadmap

Electric motors, taken together, make up the single largest end use of electricity in many developed countries.

In many developed countries, in industrial applications, electric motors account for roughly 60% of electricity consumption; in the process industries, electric motors can account for more than 70% of electricity use.

The cost of running a motor can be as much as ten times to the purchasing cost of a motor. Therefore operation of motors represents a huge potential for energy savings.
