ED2E 2016

Objectives

In the general context of sustainable development, the conference will focus on eco-design of electrical equipment in connection with the development of renewable energies and energy efficiency.

The evolution of their constituent materials and their inclusion in the current and future power grids show prospective. The time frame tied to that context justifies the consideration of technical and economic constraints to investment, operating costs and recycling.
