IEA 4E Workshop - Addressing product lifetime, repairability, and resource efficiency: what can we learn from current trends in European product policy
This workshop is hosted by the IEA Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment (4E) as part of the Product Energy Efficiency Trends - PEET.
The workshop will feature a presentation by Dr. Carl Dalhammar, who is associate professor at IIIEE, Lund University. His research interests include law and innovation, government-industry interactions, technology transfer, and product-oriented environmental policy.
