Electric motor driven systems account for the greatest part of industrial electricity consumption in Europe. Numerous studies on individual component and on the consumption characterization have shown the considerable potential for improvement of energy efficiency of these systems, and have recommended suitable policy actions. A number of policies have succeeded in making improvements on the supply side for individual components of systems, such as the electric motor itself. The paper describes the programme design. The programme is based on the analysis of the main reasons why profitable energy savings measures are not put into practice in the private companies and on the successful examples where high level management made the necessary decisions to carry out motor systems energy efficiency programmes.
