VEM is Gold Sponsor for 1st CEMEP Technical Conference European drive manufacturers meet on 13th and 14th September to contribute actively to the future development of their branch

Which global trends are currently concerning the European manufacturers of electric machines and power electronics? Which challenges do they face? How will standardisation and further developments in EU legislation effect the implementation of technological processes in the future? These are some of the questions which are to be addressed when the umbrella organisation of European motor, drives and UPS manufacturers invites its members to the 1st CEMEP Technical Conference at the Harzer Kultur- & Kongresshotel in Wernigerode on 13th and 14th September 2018. For this event, which is organised for the first time in this manner, the VEM group is gold sponsor. Furthermore, VEM has opened the way for the CEMEP Conference which this year takes the place of the renowned event “Technical Day of VEM”. 

Together with high-ranking representatives from industry, politics and research the participants will be discussing topics of key relevance, and in this way contributing to the formulation of future-oriented goals for manufacturers and users across the European continent.  “In the face of unrelenting international competition, we are convinced that it is no longer sufficient simply to define ever stricter energy efficiency classes. Our belief is that genuine energy savings can only be achieved by viewing drives as complete systems, and that especially in the context of Industry 4.0,” says CEMEP President Claus Petersen. www.cemep-conference.eu   

The CEMEP organisation

CEMEP is the European Committee of Manufacturers of Electrical Machines and Power Electronics. As the umbrella organisation of European drive manufacturers, with headquarters in Brussels, its members are 12 national associations representing an industry with an overall workforce of 130,000 employees. The annual turnover of the manufacturers of electric motors, variable-speed drives and uninterruptible power supplies amounts to more than €10 billion. 

The objective of the organisation is to promote the joint interests of the industry in all technical, industrial, economic, environmental and political matters, and thereby to support the further development of products, systems and components. Its activities are structured into four industry groups: Low-voltage motors, high-voltage motors, variable-speed drives and uninterruptible power supplies.
