“Low efficiency motors (IE1) are still very often supplied in the Czech Republic (and many other Eastern Bloc countries). This is despite the fact that they are highly inefficient in terms of operating costs and for many years their use has been directly prohibited by Directive 2009/125/EC due to excessive environmental burdens“.
How to choose the right electric motor?
