Workshop: Digitalization in industrial electric motor driven systems

How can digitalization in industrial electric motor driven systems boost energy savings & CO2-reduction to contribute to climate targets?

We invite you for a discussion on “digitalization in industrial electric motor driven systems” organised by IEA 4E EMSA (Electric Motor Systems Annex).

We present you some first results of the EMSA Task Digitalization and New Industrial Technology. We’d like to discuss these topics with you and try to identify trends as well new technologies, energy effects, use cases and potential need for policy intervention. Which barriers have to be addressed?

EMSA is an Annex of the IEA Technical Cooperation Program 4E, see www.iea-4e.org/emsa. Members Austria, Sweden and Netherlands contribute to this Task.

The workshop is open for participation by invitation only.
