Energy Efficient Motor Driven Systems


  • Hans De Keulenaer

    (European Copper Institute, Brussels)


The Motor Challenge Programme is a voluntary programme promoted by the European Commission to help companies improve the energy efficiency of their electric motor driven systems. The Challenge focuses on electric drives, compressed air, fan and pump systems, for which it has been demonstrated that there exists a large technical and economic potential for energy savings. Any organisations wishing to contribute to the Motor Challenge Programme objectives can participate. Companies that use motor driven systems can request Partner status. Organisations (in particular companies that supply motor driven systems and components) wishing to assist the Commission and Member States in carrying out the Motor Challenge Programme may become Endorsers. More information can be found at .
