Future Motors is a young, vibrant business looking to revolutionise energy consumption in the UK and EU. We are doing that with an electric Switch Reluctance Smart Motor designed for use in in HVAC, refrigeration, pumping and most equipment that currently uses an induction motor.
Energy efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly, the patented design features a bespoke, intelligent IoT-driven software controller, for a supremely controllable motor at a much reduced lifetime cost. Its built-in software and connectivity provides constant real-time monitoring of energy use, speed, torque, and temperature which allows automatic diagnosis of HVAC system issues. This connectivity also allows remote controllability to maximise energy efficiency and enable demand-side management to avoid higher energy tariffs and enjoy demand side response revenues.
Don’t just take our word for it. wilko, one of the UK’s largest family owned DIY, homeware and garden retailers, is rolling out a nationwide upgrade programme for all the electric motors that drive HVAC air conditioning systems in its stores. Following an extensive and successful trial period, the retailer has invested in nearly 400 patented Switch Reluctance Smart Motor systems, manufactured by newly rebranded Silicon Valley-based Turntide Motors. An audit of motors performance during this roll-out measured average energy savings of 42% which outperforms the expected savings and gives a simple financial payback of less than 3 years.
The average C02 saved per unit in the trial equated to 2.4 tonnes, with a kilowatt saving per unit of 7,780 KWhrs, when compared to the incumbent electric motor systems. When scaling these savings across wilko’s total install base of electric motors, the estimated savings are substantial – 918 tonnes of C02 and 2.97 gigawatt hours throughout the lifecycle of the motors.
Adopting this approach to energy saving also enables operations to work towards the UK government’s goal of Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. It promotes the view that creating a better future for society is a better future for business.

The UK government’s aim is to get carbon emissions to Net Zero by 2050, placing ‘clean economic growth’ at the heart of its industrial strategy. With the stakes so high – environmentally and economically – why has the move towards net zero been so hard to achieve and why have UK businesses been so slow to grab hold of the opportunity the green tech revolution offers?
