Switzerland 2015Bob Davis attended the 8th annual EEDAL International Conference on Energy Efficiency in Domestic Appliances and Lighting in Lucerne, Suisse in late August.  This bi-annual conference convenes at various European locations and addresses efficiency of domestic appliances and lighting. Ecotope’s presentation was on its recent end-use metering research that is now being used to inform conservation potential estimates in the Pacific Northwest. Bob was able to see what is going on with Europe’s appliance efficiency programs and related issues such as smart (grid-enabled) appliances and carbon reduction targets.
