The workshop will present a series of technology innovations in the field of electric motors for industrial applications and will provide an update of the regulatory framework.
A new motor efficiency regulation is planned for implementation by January 2021 and the Circular Economy initiative is gaining new momentum. In response to this, new designs and manufacturing techniques are being developed. But these efforts also extend to the operational life of motors: how to get the highest efficiency in use and how to maintain and repair efficiently the existing assets are two questions that will be tackled during the workshop.
This session is the 8th in a series that started in back in 2011, initiated by the European Copper Institute to advocate for better motor energy performance and create a discussion forum between manufacturers, experts and users.
Participation in this event is free but registration is required (limited seats available).
(Participants in this workshop may also be interested in registering for the Workshop on high efficiency and low-cost drivetrains for electric vehicles, taking place at the same location in the afternoon. Three EU-funded projects will present their innovations to tackle the challenge of developing motors with reduced or no rare earth use.)
