US Department of Energy Issues 2020 Motor System Market Assessment


May 5, 2021

The 2020 US Department of Energy (USDOE) Motor System Market Assessment Motor (MSMA) was a follow-up to the 2002 MSMA. The assessments studied motor-driven systems for industrial and commercial motors greater than or equal to 1 hp.

Key findings and takeaway excerpts from the 2020 MSMA are in the condensed list below, taken from the report’s Executive Summary. A longer longer version of the key findings and takeaways is also available for download. These documents provide excerpts of the many “nuggets” of information that EASA members can use to identify current market conditions and trends in various motor system sectors and assist in future planning. The complete 252-page 2020 MSMA Report is also available for download.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
