Fans are one of the largest single consumers of motive power energy, and therefore represent an important area for energy savings to reduce CO2 emissions. The primary objective of this book is to create an awareness in industry, the tertiary sector and policy that the uptake of more efficient fans and system design will reduce energy consumption and emissions and increase the competitiveness of industry. The book concentrates on fans in the range from 0.75 to 750 kW, but the results and methodology will also be of relevance to other categories of fans. The existing EU fan user market and barriers to reducing energy costs are characterised. Against this background, the cost effectiveness of different policy options is evaluated, with particular reference to the effects on manufacturers, users and other stakeholders. Possible EU policies implemented as a result of this book are expected to help generate energy savings ranging between 10 and 20 %. Based on an estimated energy consumption of about 197 TWh of electricity per year for fan applications in the EU, the related CO2 emissions can be reduced by 19000 kt CO2/year. The achievable energy savings will be worth up to 2600 million euro annually.
