How can industry reach environmental targets and at the same time be competitive? Improved energy efficiency is a means that include both.
My research concerns non-energy benefits from energy efficiency investments in the Swedish industry. These benefits are positive side-effect that can be delivered when investing in energy efficiency and some examples are improved productivity, reductions in operations and maintenance, improved work environment and less emissions and waste. Awareness of non-energy benefits is an important means to improve energy efficiency investment decisions.
My research also concerns how the Swedish industry, in particular the Swedish pulp and paper industry, work with energy management.
