At the CIRED conference, Irmeline de Sadeleer presented some results from our joint research project with ABB Electrification Norway. We have performed carbon footprint assessment of a switchgear where we have used four different calculation methods. The results show that there are substantially variations across the studies, and we question how best to solve this challenge so that manufacturers and customers can produce and order the most environmentally friendly solutions.
The topic is considered so interesting that NORSUS by Anne Rønning has been invited to sit on the panel for a roundtable conference with the theme «Green Network Solutions».
ABB has published a video summarising our paper.
The project is funded by Oslofjordfondet.
