New conference to focus on technology and legislation surrounding electric motor driven systems

02 March 2011

Five leading industry trade bodies (BPMA, BCAS, BEAMA, GAMBICA and FETA) are currently working on a conference that will address many of the issues affecting manufacturers and users of electric motor driven machinery and equipment. These trade associations represent the manufacturers and users of a variety of equipment types, including pumps, compressors, fans, motors, drives and associated controls.

Organised by Touchwave Media, the Motor Driven Systems (MDS) Conference will take place on November 9 and 10 2011, at St. John’s Hotel, Solihull, West Midlands.

Electric motors and motor driven systems account for 40% of the world’s total electricity consumption. There is huge potential for energy savings and legislation is already in place to achieve this. However, many remain unaware of this legislation and the technologies that can help reduce the energy demand of motor driven systems. It is estimated that energy reductions of as much as 20% to 30% are possible on short payback periods, clearly presenting technical challenges but also providing many potential savings opportunities.

The MDS Conference will take the form of a discussion forum examining developments within this sector that have a positive impact on energy consumption, the environment and company balance sheets.
The event will look at existing and forthcoming legislation for energy efficiency; the degree to which standardisation can play its part; system strategies – which ones are in place and which ones could and should be in place; technologies – what exists now and what is in the pipeline?

The conference will include sessions at which representatives from government, trade bodies, manufacturers and technical experts will present their views.

This conference should be attended by decision makers, financial heads, energy managers, plant engineers, and facilities managers within the manufacturing and processing industries any any other sectors where pumps, compressed air, motors, drives, controls and fans have a part to play.
