ROSSLYN, Va.—Impact Energy, an international operating center of competence for energy efficiency, recently announced that National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) Industry Director Bill Hoyt will co-chair the 2016 International Motor Summit for Energy Efficiency, to be held on October 11 and 12 in Zurich, Switzerland.
