Prepared for 2015's motor efficiency standards?

Prepared for 2015's motor efficiency standards?
Efficiency regulations for electric motors will apply in Europe from January 1st 2015, whereby any installation using a 7.5-375kW motor must use either an IE3-rated or IE2 motor installed with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD). Aimed at improving the overall efficiency of the installed equipment across Europe, the regulation is supported by EN50598, a standard which benchmarks the efficiency ratings of electric motor drives.
