In China, a combination of further lightening of MEPS, their wider adoption and, particularly, the imposition of requirements for energy
management systems could considerably reduce electricity deman...
d and thereby emissions from the currently carbon-intensive power generation sector (Figure 2.6). India, too, has
considerable potential for emissions reductions through the use of more efficient industrial motors. At present, India has no MEPS for electric motors in industry and a highly carbonintensive
power mix. The adoption of such standards in India is assumed in the 4-for-2 °C Scenario and lowers its emissions from the industry sector by about 55 Mt CO2-eq in 2020
(almost 40% of the projected abatement related to energy efficiency). While MEPS are an important instrument to encourage the use of more efficient industrial motor systems, there are barriers to their deployment, such as inadequate assessment of the actual
service required and the complexity of motor systems. However, much has already been done to study policy opportunities and policy best practices in this area, paving the way for
the swift and effective introduction of this measure.10 This results in widespread adoption of more efficient industrial motor systems in the 4-for-2 °C Scenario.
