We accept no liability for any damage or loss caused by the applications,
information, programs, planning data, or performance data described in this
example, irrespective of the legal basis for claims arising from such damage
or loss, unless liability is mandatory. For example, according to the product
liability law, in cases of malfeasance, gross negligence, due to endangerment
of life, body or health, due to assumption of a guarantee for a product's
characteristics of state, due to malicious concealment of a defect or due to
violation of basic contractual obligations. Any claims for damages caused by
violation of basic contractual obligations, however, shall be limited to the
foreseeable damage or loss which is typically envisaged in contracts unless
there has been malfeasance or gross negligence or unless liability is
mandatory due to endangerment of life, the body or health. This does not

siemens. This is because electric drives consume 70% of the electric energy in the industry. As a consequence.de/international-efficiency . a higher energy efficiency allows companies to improve their cost position. considerable emphasis is placed on energy efficiency to protect our environment. electric drives represent a huge potential when it comes to boosting efficiency. therefore increasing their competitiveness. On the other hand. Many countries have already created a legal framework to reduce energy consumption in their industrial landscape – and to achieve the environmental goals that have been set. 3 www. The standards were either taken over – or transitioned into minimum legal efficiency requirements. the focus has been on industrial direct-on-line (DOL) motors from a very early stage. Standards Initially.MEPS On one hand. for instance IEC 60034-30-1 and NEMA MG1. Sustainably reducing energy usage Regarding energy efficiency. The term used around the globe for these minimum efficiencies is MEPS: Minimum Energy Performance Standards. global standards were defined to achieve this.

Profit from MEPS Companies operating plants especially profit from MEPS regulations as these help them to boost their productivity. A payback calculation always makes sense in order to select the most cost-effective motor for line operation. the energy consumption can be significantly reduced – and along with it. the energy costs represent up to 99% of the overall lifecycle costs. Operating costs can be reduced with a high efficiency. the associated costs. but can also be simply viewed using the SIMOTICS EE-COMPARATOR App.de/international-efficiency . by increasing the efficiency of a motor. Companies operating plants can sustainably benefit when investing in energy efficiency. Tools Tools are available that can be used to define when it makes sense to invest in energy efficient motors: SIMOTICS EE Comparator The efficiency of IE4 motors is 14% higher than for IE1. 4 www. An overview of these requirements is listed below. Every country has its own specific MEPS requirements. for a 110kW motor.siemens. As a consequence. For instance.
