8th International Conference on Energy Efficiency in Motor Driven Systems (EEMODS)

EEMODS is an established international conference where policymakers and energy efficiency experts from industry, research labs, universities and standardisation organisations meet every two years to discuss energy efficiency policies and technologies progress in electric motor systems (pumps, compressors, fans, drives, etc.).

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre has coordinated the scientific programme of this 8th EEMODS Conference and has chaired the International Programme Committee and will publish the conference proceedings. The organisation of the event is in the hands of Eletrobras (the largest electricity company in South America) and the Brazilian Electric Power Research Center CEPEL.

In addition to the plenary sessions where high level representatives of international organisations will present the latest policy developments, there are 24 parallel sessions where 100 oral presentations of scientific nature will take place.
