Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency should be one of the highest lifecycle considerations for economic and environmental performance of commercial and industrial air systems. We at AMCA are involved in energy efficiency programs on a variety of levels, depending on the regional interests of our members:

Asia: Asia AMCA is tracking the development of energy efficiency regulations throughout Asia. Also, some members of AMCA International located in Asia are certifying fans for fan efficiency grade (FEG) ratings.

Europe: The European Commission has enacted a regulation for fan efficiency around the ISO Standard 12759, Fans Efficiency Classification for Fans, and the efficiency metric, fan motor efficiency grade (FMEG). The regulation, EC 327/2011 became effective on the first of January, 2012, and is currently undergoing a revision cycle.
