Following last year’s inaugural Motor Driven Systems’ (MDS) Conference, the date for the 2012 event has been announced. The second MDS Conference will take place on 7th November at St. John’s Hotel, Solihull.
The event is supported by the same five national trade associations that came together to ensure the successful launch of MDS 2011.
BPMA, BCAS, BEAMA, Gambica and FETA represent the pumps, compressed air, motors, drives, controls and fan industries respectively, and are all vitally important conduits for getting across the message that a systems’ engineering approach to motor driven systems is critical in achieving energy efficiency.
The inaugural event was held over a two-day period enabling the organisers to bring together the many and varied strands of legislation, standardisation, system strategies and technological developments affecting motor driven systems.
The 2012 one-day MDS Conference will still examine the significance of these areas but will focus sharply on drilling down into how they impinge on the all- important end users.
Because electric motors and motor driven systems in industry and commerce, together with pumps, fans and compressors still account for around 40% of the world’s total energy consumption, it was always intended that the MDS Conference would be an on-going process rather than a one-off event.
Given that existing and future legislation and technological innovations can offer the potential to reduce the energy demand of motor systems across the global economy by 20% – 30%, it is in industry’s best interest to find out how it can benefit.
Decision makers, financial heads, energy managers, plant engineers and facilities managers within manufacturing and processing industries in end user companies will hear much to their advantage by attending the MDS Conference 2012.
The MDS Conference will take place at St. John’s Hotel, Solihull on Wednesday 7th November 2012.
