International Copper Association India (ICA India) hosted the national seminar on ‘Energy Efficient Motor Standards & Emerging Challenges’ in New Delhi. The guests of honour for the event were Ravinder, Secretary DIPP and R K Bajaj, DDG – BIS who delivered keynote address. Ravinder cited that the import of sub-standard motors should be controlled and customs can help by keeping a check and barring them from entering India eventually helping in the adoption of IS across the country.

Sanjeev Ranjan, Managing Director, ICA India said, “We hope that our seminar on energy efficient motor standards would have provided all the stakeholders the ground to come up with solutions for the challenges related to adoption of Higher Efficiency Motors (HEMs) and finding new solutions for transforming the markets towards high efficiency motors and motor systems.” Abhishek Dhupar, Manager–Motor & Motor Driven Systems, ICA India said, “Since IS 12615 was brought under mandatory certification for improving efficiency standard for motors in India, the demand and usage of IE2 & above motors has increased and hence this seminar was an effort to address the issues related to mandatory certification.” The seminar had experts from DIPP, BIS, Siemens, KBL, ERDA & ICA India.
