Benefits through coordination & alignment of IEC & ISO standards for electric motor driven systems

In the past 3 years representatives from industry, research and other stakeholders have made concrete steps into an intensified coordination of energy efficiency standards. This has led to the establishment of the ISO & IEC Joint Advisory Body JAG 22 (see presentation by JAG22 repr.). Founding TC’s are ISO TC 117 (fans), and IEC TC 2 (motors) and IEC TC 22/SC22G (PDS).
The main focus lies into facilitating the exchange and coordination between ISO and IEC in the field of all types of Electric Driven Machine Units (EDMU); and identifying the relevant coordination issues and proposed solutions and describe these considerations or results of such exchange and coordination discussions for guidance, reference.
Working on improved global energy efficiency standards can bring benefits to all stakeholders involved. With the overall goal to reduce energy consumption and limit the amount of carbon entering the atmosphere. Where a regulator focusses on regulation that is effective, delivering savings and keeping a level playing field in place, the industry prime focus will be on delivering the best solutions to the market at competitive prices and service levels.
A key in the supply chain, i.e. from manufacturer to customer/end user, with the regulator defining an important part of the playing field, is the quality of data used: in the manufacturers catalogues, in the customer’s and system integrator’s procurement specifications and in the specific applicable regulations. With the qualitative high-level data appropriate tools can be developed as well, for system design and for building, supporting (inter)national policy and climate program development.
This becomes more acute through the globally identified need for more stringent measures for reducing the carbon entering the atmosphere. Concrete international initiatives work on the development of programs for increased product efficiency, expanding the scope of regulation from product to systems, and expanding the actual MEPS in place to a greater portion of the world. Any assistance through available aligned standards could help stakeholders in optimizing the potential portfolio of standards and regulations for energy efficient products, units and systems.
