The motors that run our vehicles, air conditioners, and all machines with moving parts consume half the world's electricity. These legacy motors are based on a 19th century design and waste half the energy they use, so they're long overdue for an upgrade. Now, a new alternative called a Smart Motor System is ushering in a more sustainable future.

Turntides highly efficient switched reluctance motor has the ability to drastically reduce energy consumption in the world's buildings, and reduce carbon emissions by 25%.
