European Motor Challenge Programme The Motor Challenge Programme is a European Commission voluntary programme (launched in February 2003) through which industrial companies are aided in improving the energy efficiency of their Motor Driven Systems. Any enterprise or organisation planning to contribute to the Motor Challenge Programme objectives can participate.
Companies that use Motor Driven Systems can request "Partner" status. Through the Motor Challenge, they will receive:
Aid in defining and carrying out an Action Plan, to reduce energy related operating expenses, while maintaining or improving reliability and quality of service;
Public recognition for their contribution to achieving the objectives of the European Union's energy and environmental policies.
In support of this, guidelines on energy saving with the different technologies are accessible.
