My research concerns improved industrial energy efficiency, and includes small and medium-sized industrial enterprises (SMEs). My research areas, e.g.: industrial energy management, energy efficiency in SMEs, barriers to and drivers for energy efficiency, energy audits, energy policies for improved industrial energy end-use, industrial energy efficiency potentials. I am leading and participating in several research projects in the area. At international level, I am managing the project Energy Efficiency in SMEs within the International Energy Agency. At EU level, I have, among other things participated in the work on financial instruments for more efficient use of energy, DG Energy, Energy Efficiency Financial Group. At national level, I have assisted the Swedish Energy Agency and governmental bodies in a number of different investigations, e.g. the design of the national energy audit policy programme, energy efficiency networks, and the act energy audits for large companies.
