Energy Efficient Electric Motor Systems webinar: potentials, tools, WBG technology

Join us for the Energy Efficient Electric Motor Systems webinar on 14 November NZDT (13 November CET), exploring the efficiency potential of electric motor systems, new and existing tools for assessing motor system efficiency, and breakthrough Wide Band Gap (WBG) semiconductor technology.

The webinar will be presented by the Electric Motor Systems Annex (EMSA) in partnership with the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority of New Zealand.

Date and time

Tuesday 14 November 09.00 – 11.00 NZDT (Wellington, New Zealand) which equals
Monday 13 November 21.00 – 23.00 CET (Zurich, Switzerland)


  • Maarten van Werkhoven – EMSA Operating Agent will introduce EMSA’s role in sharing best practice in energy efficient motor systems and aligning policies and international technical standards to continually improve their performance globally.
  • Konstantin Kulterer – Austrian Energy Agency will introduce the Energy Audit Guide for Motor Driven Systems, and how to use available standards and tools for a motor system audit.
  • Sandie B. Nielsen – Danish Technological Institute will explore the Motor Systems Tool, and how it can help to model and optimise electric motor systems efficiency.
  • Roland Brueniger – Swiss Federal Office of Energy will introduce the IEA 4E PECTA (Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex) focusing on advancements in Wide Band Gap (WBG) technology.
  • Andrea Vezzini – Bern University of Applied Sciences will share insights into the ongoing Wide Band Gap Test project, which explores the impact of Silicon Carbide (SiC) Inverters for industrial motors.

The webinar will be held physically in Wellington, New Zealand. REGISTER for online participation.

This webinar is an opportunity for engineers, system integrators, energy consultants, and others in the energy sector to hear from international experts at the cutting edge of research and testing for Electric Motor Systems – currently responsible for around 55% of electricity use globally.
