This report reviews China’s establishment of a China Motor Systems Energy Conservation Program in order to improve the efficiency of motor systems. Elements of this program include: work to develop minimum efficiency standards for motors; a voluntary “green motor” labelling program for high-efficiency motors; efforts to develop and promote motor system management guidelines; and a training, technical assistance and financing program to promote optimization of key motor systems.
