DOE to award nearly $25M to enable innovative electrical motors used in manufacturing

DOE to award nearly $25M to enable innovative electrical motors used in manufacturing 28 November 2016 The US Department of Energy announced nearly $25 million for 13 projects aimed at advancing technologies for energy-efficient electric motors through applied research and development. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE) Next Generation Electric Machines projects will address the limitations of traditional materials and designs used in electric motor components by cost-effectively enhancing their efficiency, improving their performance, and reducing weight. This effort will support innovative approaches that will significantly improve the technology in industrial electric motors, which use approximately 70% of the electricity consumed by US manufacturers and nearly a quarter of all electricity consumed nationally. Improvements to these systems can...
