SEAD webinar on efficient electric motors and motor systems

This SEAD Policy Exchange Forum webinar will explore the different challenges and what it is required to build an effective program for promoting the energy efficient electric motors. Participants on the call will have a chance to learn about the technology, approaches and challenges to electric motor regulation, what it takes to build testing capacity for the program and learn about the global program that can provide the solution to the challenges of motor regulation.

The SEAD Policy Exchange Forum is an informal forum where policymakers and their delegated representatives share and learn from one another about cutting-edge and cost-effective approaches to specific appliance energy efficiency challenges.

The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative is a voluntary collaboration among governments working to promote the manufacture, purchase, and use of energy-efficient appliances, lighting, and equipment worldwide.
