Increased motor energy subsidies have hindered market promotion
Efficient motor promotion dates back to 2008. In 2008, China listed the energy saving of motor system as one of the top ten energy-saving projects in the country. In 2009, it also applied high-efficiency and ultra-efficient motor applications to Huimin Engineering. On June 2, 2010, it issued a notice saying that high-efficiency motors should be included in energy-saving. The scope of implementation of the product Huimin project has made the market promotion of high-efficiency motors attract much attention.
From the perspective of motor power consumption, the motor energy-saving market seems to be popular with energy-saving service companies. Taking Zhongshan as an example, the two largest energy consumptions are boiler and industrial electricity, while in industrial electricity consumption, motor consumption accounts for more than 70%, including pumps, air compressors, fans, equipment power supply systems, etc. For example, waste heat, lighting, transportation and other fields account for about 30%.
but it is not the truth. "Many of your business is concentrated on the 30% share, such as waste heat recovery, line transformation, etc." He Jun, who has been engaged in energy conservation and environmental protection for many years, said that none of the nine professional energy-saving service companies in Zhongshan have specifically promoted the improvement of motor energy efficiency. To do it, only the transformation of the inverter and the servo is included in the entire energy-saving project, and the proportion of the motor business is very small.
An energy-saving and environmental protection engineer in Zhongshan said that energy-saving enterprises should intervene in the field of electric motors and need to deploy new electric power engineers. After learning and training and experience accumulation, the effect will probably be reached by the end of the year. The long return on investment may affect the development of energy-saving enterprises. This is also the problem that companies need to face.
However, for energy-saving service companies, the biggest problem is the difficulty in developing the motor market. The main reason is that the price of high-efficiency motors is too high. He Jun said that due to the high technical threshold, the cost of high-efficiency motor is twice as high as that of ordinary motor, and energy-saving funds can only subsidize 50%. Others should be supplemented by the electricity saved by improving motor efficiency. "High-efficiency motors can improve motor efficiency by 5%-10%. For enterprises, the energy-saving effect is not obvious, and the attractiveness may not be great." He Jun said with anxiety, "With the policy landing, energy-saving funds are definitely More will be more energy-efficient for motors. Some companies that do other energy-saving projects are even more reluctant to invest, but they are still confused about how to open the motor market. It is difficult to adapt to the moment."
Zhou Sigang, deputy director of the Major Equipment Office of the China National Machinery Industry Federation, once said to the media that because of the high cost of high-efficiency motors, end users have low-cost demands on motors, so it is particularly difficult to promote them.
In addition, there are few manufacturers of high-efficiency motors, which reduces the desire for corporate procurement. During the period from August 2010 to December 2013, the Ministry of Finance and the National Development and Reform Commission distributed the catalogue of high-efficiency motors for “energy-saving products for the benefit of the people”. The latest promotion catalogue consisted of 90 companies, mostly concentrated in Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai. In the provinces and cities, only three companies including Hepu Power Technology, Dongguan Motor and Jiangmen Jiangyu Motor were selected.
Although the high-efficiency motor subsidy funds continue to increase, but its promotion has been blocked for several years, this is where He Jun and other energy-saving people are more worried. He Jun said that he will contact the relevant motor companies as soon as possible, hoping to find a way to open the market. "In the short-term, enterprises may choose to upgrade the motor system first, and the energy efficiency improvement is more obvious. However, in the long run, it is necessary to replace the high-efficiency motor." He Jun predicted, "Now I hope that the high-efficiency motor price can be reduced if the energy-saving subsidy And the power saved after the energy efficiency improvement can make up for the purchase price that needs to be added to replace the motor, then the motor transformation business is easily accepted by the customer."
