New Efficiency Standards for Distribution Transformers
The U.S. Department of Energy has proposed new efficiency standards for Distribution Transformers to improve the resiliency of America’s power grid, reduce utility bills, and significantly lower domestic CO2 emissions. Almost all transformers produced under the new standard will benefit from amorphous metal cores, which are much more energy efficient than those made of traditional, grain-oriented electrical steel.
Metglas amorphous alloys are earth-friendly, high technology materials for which reduce no-load loss (standby electricity) in distribution transformers to about one-third the level compared to those using grain-oriented electrical steel.
Metglas, Inc. supports the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recommendation to improve the efficiency standards and stand ready for increased usage of amorphous metal-based transformers to help the U.S. reduce fossil-fuel dependency and create a cleaner environment with higher air quality and lower electricity bills for consumers.
Metglas is actively expanding current capacity to support increased needs for amorphous electrical steel!
