Background and Motivation

A lack of sufficient data is a major barrier to effective decision making that will help to capture the energy savings potential in motor systems. Prior to the release of this report, there was no information on the current state of motor driven systems in U.S. industrial and commercial facilities. This limited the ability to conduct analysis on energy savings potential, develop technologies to address energy and productivity gaps, and develop programs to promote energy efficiency.
