DOE proposes new efficiency rules for distribution transformers, potentially saving consumers $15B

article view


The U.S. Department of Energy on Dec. 28 proposed new energy-efficiency standards for distribution transformers to come into effect in 2027, aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and potentially saving consumers approximately $15 billion over 30 years.
Because most electricity generated at power plants goes through one or more transformers, experts say even small efficiency improvements can significantly reduce emissions and electricity generation.
DOE said the proposed rules would impact three categories of distribution transformers, requiring them to include amorphous steel cores that are more efficient than those typically made of grain-oriented electrical steel.

          Such commitments to reduce emissions are required for us to reach the net zero target by 2050.
