December 9, 2016 - At the 2016 Motor Summit in Zurich, Switzerland, John Malinowski, Senior Director of Industry Affairs for Baldor, the ABB Group Company received a MS’16 Award in recognition “for his personal engagement to make IE3 premium efficiency motors the global market standard”.  John is a voice and advocate for motor manufacturers working with standards organizations and government agencies.

The award was presented at the bi-annual event held since 2007 in Zurich. It brought together selected international experts together from research; federal governments; utilities; motor, pump and fan manufacturers; original equipment manufacturers (OEM); motor systems users and other interested parties to discuss motor and drive technology, new global efficiency programs and market transformations. The event was hosted by Impact Energy, a member of the Swiss Agency for Efficient Energy Use (S.A.F.E.), in collaboration with the Electric Motor Systems Annex (EMSA) of the IEA 4E (International Energy Agency Technology Collaboration Programme on Energy Efficient End-use Equipment) and the national program SwissEnergy.

Industrial electric motors have had their efficiency regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy since 1997 and Natural Resources Canada since 1998. The European Union, Mexico, Australia, Saudi Arabia, China, Brazil and many other countries have legislated Minimum Efficiency Performance Standards (MEPS) to set efficiency levels for motors sold for use in their countries. John has worked with these groups to set and harmonize efficiency levels across the globe.
