Energy Efficiency in Motor Driven Systems

Previous Eemods events have been very successful in attracting distinguished and international presenters and attendees. The wide variety of stakeholders has included professionals involved in industry, marketing, and promotion of energy efficient motors and motor driven systems, policy making and research. Segments represented come from industry, academia, research, and public policy.

Eemods´15 will provide a forum to discuss and debate the latest developments in the impacts of electrical motor systems on energy and the environment, the energy efficiency policies, standards (ISO 50.001) and programmes adopted and planned, and the technical and commercial advances made in the dissemination and penetration of energy-efficient motor systems.
