by swisschambei in Engineering / Manufacturing

ABB Motion, a business unit of the Swiss technology and engineering company ABB Group, plans to introduce more of its latest electric motor products in China to respond to the government’s call to pursue green and high-quality development, said its top executive. With China setting a target to combat climate change by speeding up reductions in emissions to reach carbon neutrality before 2060, measures to improve energy efficiency will play a vital role in helping industry and infrastructure to reduce their emissions, said Morten Wierod, president of ABB Motion. While mostly hidden from public view, electric motors are embedded in almost every built environment. They power a vast range of applications fundamental to modern life, he said. China has recognized the importance of efficient electric motors as a matter of policy, with a new national standard requiring motors to have a minimum efficiency level of IE3 coming into effect on June 1, 2021. “As one of the earliest countries to sign the Paris Agreement, China has made a strong commitment to address climate change,” said Morten Wierod, President of ABB Motion. “This latest legislation on electric motor efficiency is an important new step in driving down emissions.
