Is there a registry or professional organization (such as the American Manufacturer's Association) of firms using or producing photovoltaics or high-efficiency motors?

I do not know if there is a registry of users, but at least in the high efficiency motor field, look up a magazine called MOTION. While it deals mostly with high performance servo loops, the motors used are also necessarily high efficiency. There are several manufacturers of high- efficiency motors, most of which use Sum-Cobalt or Neo-Iron materials. Check the Thomas Registers for Servo motor manufacturers.
