（ROSSLYN, VA）－NEMA很快将推出50Hz电机新节能标准。该50Hz标准结合60Hz电机作为NEMA Premium®电机计划的一部分。NEMA Premium电机50Hz标准将使参与NEMA Premium电机计划的生产商能够在世界范围内生产和销售60Hz 和 50Hz NEMA Premium电机，还可使50Hz积分电机生产商执行NEMA Premium商标，这将巩固NEMA Premium标准，使其成为一个重要的节能商标。
NEMA Premium电机被公认为是北美最主要的节能积分电机。其他标准组织已经广泛采用或者响应了EMA MG1 标准，这项标准结合了60Hz电机。加入到MG 1 标准中的50Hz标准也期待广泛接受。
NEMA Premium 节能电机计划于2001年发起。最初，预计头十年该计划将节约足够的电量，其功能等同于禁止1600万辆骑车上路而节约的电量。通过NEMA发电机部门的高效能营销以及运用电机解决方案（MDM）的协同努力，该计划已经超越了预想的效果，MDM由能源效率协会（CEE），美国能源效率经济协会和其他协会组织共同执行。
许多电力行业都认可NEMA Premium并且要求提供折扣指定安装NEMA Premium电机，美国80％以上电机生产和销售都由NEMA发电机部门成员来完成。
NEMA Premium 节能电机超越了1992年推行的能源政策法案规定的最低节能标准，影响某些1-200马力通用积分电机的最低标准是基于NEMA标准的。
2001年该计划推出之时，MG 1 方案董事长Dale Basso表示：“NEMA电机成员有节能技术方案满足需要和工业用户的需求，我们选择将NEMA Premium计划扩展至联邦政府目前所规定的电机之外的产品范围，以便全方位更好的服务于客户。”MG 1 工业促进委员会主席Rob Boteler也表示：“电机用户采用NEMA Premium是对其最有益处的，这样最大程度的提高电机效率，降低电量消耗成本，改进电机系统可靠性和性能。”
当被征求引进50Hz标准的意见时Boteler表示，“发展NEMA Premium 50Hz标准为50Hz电网电机用户，同世界上60Hz电机领域用户一样，提供同样的机会降低能源消耗和相应的生产成本。将50Hz NEMA Premium电机作为单机组件或者作为50Hz发电的电机驱动系统的组件将进一步全面降低二氧化碳，对此我们非常乐观。”
Boteler将在第五届全球电机系统能效论坛上（EEMODS） ‘07展出标准方案强调NEMA Premium计划，论坛于6月10日至13日在中国北京举行。EEMODS论坛在世界，尤其中国继续寻找节能产品时及时开办，NEMA北京办事处将邀请中国所有关注节能电机的设计和电机系统的官方人员参加论坛，NEMA成员也将被鼓励参加，论坛信息参见网站：www.eemods.org”
[COLOR=#708090]NEMA Expands NEMA Premium Brand Energy Efficiency Program
23 Mar 2007
（ROSSLYN, VA） - NEMA, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association, will soon release a new energy-efficiency standard for the 50Hz motor. The 50Hz standard thus joins the 60Hz motor as part of the NEMA Premium® motor program. The NEMA Premium Motors 50Hz Standard will allow the manufacturers that participate in the NEMA Premium Motors Program to manufacture and market NEMA Premium motors in both 60Hz and 50Hz configurations worldwide. It will also allow manufacturers of 50Hz integral motors to license the NEMA Premium brand, which will solidify the standing of NEMA Premium as an important energy-efficiency brand.
NEMA Premium Motors are recognized as the leading energy-efficient integral motors in North America. Other standards organizations have widely adopted or mirrored the NEMA MG 1 standard that incorporates 60Hz motors. The 50Hz tables added to MG 1 are also expected to be widely accepted.
The NEMA Premium Efficient Electric Motor program was launched in 2001. At the outset of the program, it was estimated that in its first 10 years, the program would save enough electricity to serve as the functional equivalent to equal keeping 16 million cars off the road. The program has exceeded expectations through marketing efforts by the NEMA Motor and Generator Section, and cooperative efforts with Motor Decisions Matter （MDM）, a program run by the Consortium for Energy Efficiency （CEE）, the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy （ACEEE） and others.
Many electric utilities recognize NEMA Premium and offer rebates for specifying and installing NEMA Premium motors. The members of the Motor and Generator Section represent more than 80 percent of U.S. production and sales of electric motors.
NEMA Premium efficient motors exceed the minimum energy-efficiency standards required by the Energy Policy Act of 1992. The minimum standards imposed on certain 1-200 horsepower general-purpose integral motors are based on NEMA standards.
When the program was announced in 2001, Dale Basso, the MG 1 Section chairman said, “NEMA motor members have the energy-technology solutions to address utility and industrial user needs. We have elected to broaden the NEMA Premium program to include motors outside the range now regulated by the federal government in order to better serve the customer in a comprehensive manner.” Rob Boteler, chairman of the MG 1 industry promotion committee, also noted, “It is in the best interests of motor users to specify NEMA Premium, thus maximizing efficiency, reducing electrical consumption costs, and improving motor system reliability and performance.”
When asked for comment on the introduction of the 50Hz standard, Boteler said, “NEMA Premium 50Hz was developed to provide motor users on 50Hz grids with the same opportunity to reduce energy consumption and subsequent production costs as motor users in 60Hz areas of the world. We are optimistic that overall greenhouse gases will be further reduced by the use of 50Hz NEMA Premium motors shipped as stand-alone units or as a component of a motor-driven system for use on a 50Hz power supply.
”Boteler will present a paper highlighting the NEMA Premium program at the Energy Efficiency in Motor Driven Systems （EEMODS） ‘07 conference in Beijing, China, June 10-13. The EEMODS conference comes at a time when the world in general—and the Chinese in particular—continues to search for energy-efficient products. The NEMA office in Beijing will extend invitations to attend the conference to Chinese officials who show vital interest in energy-efficient motor design and systems. NEMA members are also encouraged to attend. Register for the conference at www.eemods.org.
The new 50 Hz motor standard is expected to be published early this spring.
