EU Ecodesign Regulations for motors and drives – what the changes mean for you

From July 2021, the latest Ecodesign Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 applies to low-voltage induction electric motors rated up to 1,000 V AC and, for the first time, to variable speed drives.

In this webinar ABB’s Rich Gee explains the new energy performance requirements looking at:

- EU Ecodesign Regulation timeline
- Regulations until June 30, 2021
- Scope
- Efficiency classes for motors and drives
- How the regulation is evolving

Many projects, particularly those in hazardous environments, can have a long lead time, often taking many months to move from planning phase to implementation. It is critical, therefore, to be aware of a significant change on 1st July 2021 in which new regulations will now encompass a range of motor types that were previously excluded from earlier efficiency regulations. Failure to embrace these changes now could prove costly for any project currently under design and build. 


Bookings are now closed.
