Europe: Energy efficiency through improved electrical steels

01.01.2015

Regulatory developments like the EU Ecodesign Directive are demanding higher levels of efficiency from electrical steels, and we are responding with a number of dedicated research projects. Three of these were undertaken in 2014, including one to help reduce transmission losses. We also produce electrical steels for hydropower generators, and in 2014 we worked on new coatings for these products which will avoid the need for formaldehyde, and so protect the health and safety of maintenance workers.
