According to the Route Map for Elimination of the In-use Low-efficiency Motorsissued by MIIT (see table below), we made the best use of means including administrative, market and economic, etc. to promote the old and low-efficiency motors to gradually exit the application market.

(III) Implementation of motor system energy saving technical transformation. Guide and support the enterprises to give priority to the selection of high-efficiency ac motors to replace low-efficient electric motors; use advanced technology for matching transformation of electric-motors and the dragging equipment. The key enterprises with the annual power consumption of more than 10 million KW shall develop the energy-saving transformation scheme of electric motor system as soon as possible (2013-2015) based on the actual situation, and specify the three-year energy efficiency improvement goal, the transformation emphasis and measures, the total investment and implementation progress for the electro-motor systems.

(IV) Implementation of the construction of pilot demonstration projects of ten thousand injection molding machines energy saving and electric motor transformation in other key industries. Promote the energy efficiency improvement of AC motors with the injection molding machine industry as a breakthrough, carry out the energy-saving transformation pilot demonstration projects of ten thousand injection molding machines (including extruders) in Foshan and Dongguan, and gradually promote the energy efficiency improvement of electric motors from a single key industry to other key industries of energy consumption of induction motors. Cities are encouraged to select the key motor power industries to carry out transformation pilot demonstration according to the characteristics of the local industries, from points to areas, to promote the implementation of the promotion plan of energy efficiency for electric motor.

IV.   Work measures

(I)   Implementation of the goal responsibilities. The Economic and Information Technology Component Departments of various regions shall develop a specific implementation scheme to promote energy efficiency of motors for their respective regions, make the task decomposition by year, ensure the completion of tasks given provincially, and give work instructions to the enterprises manufacturing and using electric motors within their respective regions. Electric Motor production enterprises shall carry out self-examination thoroughly and develop specific promotion plan of energy efficiency for ac motor. Various regions and enterprises shall attach great importance to promote the energy efficiency of electric motor, and the implementation will be important content of the evaluation and assessment of the energy-saving goals responsibilities of the municipal governments and the assessment of enterprise energy-saving.

(II)  Strengthen financial guidance

The special funds allocated provincially will be used to support the promotion plan of energy efficiency for electric motor in the 20 cities of prefecture level or above (excluding Shenzhen) throughout the province in the manner of replacing subsidies with rewards. For the transformed motors in line with the new energy efficiency standards of ac motors (2012 version), the standard provincial subsidy is 140 Yuan / kW in the northeast and northwest regions of Guangdong before transforming power of electric motor, and 100 Yuan / kW in the Pearl River Delta area before transforming power of electric motors, and the relevant implementing rules will be developed separately by the Economic & Information Commission of Guangdong Province together with the Department of Finance of Guangdong Province. Encourage various regions to allocate funds to make up according to the subsidy standard of 200 Yuan / kW; the regions and cities with good financial resources can also raise the standards based on the situations to support the electricmotor system energy saving and transformation. If the electric motor system energy saving and transformation is implemented in the mode of contract energy management, the transformation subsidies shall be applied by the energy service companies. If an enterprise obtained the subsidies for electric-motor system energy saving and transformation, it will not be affected to apply for and enjoy the other national and provincial energy-saving funding projects.

(III) Increase policy support. Firstly, strengthen the special review for electric motor manufacturer and encourage increasing the production capacity of motors with high-efficiency ac motor. Secondly, strengthen the special review on the electrical-motor user enterprises, and refuse to approve the newly built, renovated or expanded projects that still select to use low-efficient motors and systems, to ensure all of the increased motors are high-efficient with dragging equipment. Thirdly, earnestly implement the policies of energy-saving products promotion subsidies, tax incentives for energy-saving and environmental protection equipment, etc., considering the selection of high-efficiency motors as a necessary condition for entering the energy-saving products and people-benefit projects.
