EELA Webinar - Pathways to Repair in the Global Off-grid Sector

Event Date: 
Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Description:

Repairability is a manageable and realistic mechanism for product lifetime extension. Quantifiable assessments, like the new European standard for the assessment of repairability, reusability and upgradeability, have introduced new steps for increasing the sustainability of electronic and electrical products. The global off-grid solar sector is presented with an important opportunity to demonstrate its leadership on sustainability, whilst creating more value for consumers and companies.

This webinar is based on a working paper by Efficiency for Access and University of Edinburgh that provides up to date information on repair and repairability in the off-grid solar sector for manufacturers, distributors, energy access policy makers and researchers.

The specific objectives of the webinar are to make EAC and SADC stakeholders understand the benefits and barriers to increasing repair, to provide a set of parameters and metrics for evaluating the ability to repair products, and to identify policy needs and opportunities that can inform decisions about product design interventions and business models that will extend the lifetime of off-grid products.

Kindly note that there will be simultaneous interpretation into French and Portuguese from English and vice versa.
