UK hosts new motor conference

The conference is by five national trade associations for pumps, compressed air, motors, drives, controls and the fan industry (BPMA, BCAS, BEAMA, GAMBICA and FETA) in a bid to underline the critical importance of systems engineering in achieving energy efficiency and hopefully produce guidance and solutions for end users.

With electric motors and motor driven systems in industry and commerce, together with pumps, fans and compressors, comprising 40% of the world’s total electricity consumption, it is clear that this is an area demanding careful analysis and positive action. The conference will look at new and existing technologies that offer the potential to reduce the energy demand of motor systems across the global economy by 20% to 30%.

The Motor Driven Systems (MDS) conference will take the form of a discussion forum examining developments within motor driven systems that impact upon energy and the environment and the consequent economic implications. The event will look at existing and forthcoming legislation on energy efficiency, the degree to which standardisation can play its part, and system strategies.

The MDS conference takes place on 9th and 10th November 2011, at St. John’s Hotel, Solihull.
