Born January 7, 1962. He graduated from Wroclaw Technical University in 1986 with M.Sc. in power engineering. He has experience in marketing and sales as well as in project management from ABB where he worked between 1991 and 1999 for generator manufacturer. He moved than to Polish open pit mining machinery industry – Famago - as Sales & Marketing Director, Member of the Board. From June, 2000 in European Copper Institute, based in Polish Copper Promotion Centre. He post graduated from ABB Executive Management MBA program. He coordinates Polish and other Central European copper electrical programs and supports local copper promotion organizations in their promotional work. His special interests cover energy efficiency especially in transformers, policy aspects of rational use of energy, vocational education (including e-learning), renewable energy sources and power quality.
Roman Targosz from ECI will present the results of the studies on proposed regulation of energy efficiency of transformers in EU.
The EuP (Energy using Products) preparatory study proposed measures, together with SEEDT project conclusions (Strategies for development and diffusion of Energy Efficient Distribution Transformers) will be presented on the background of other, non European transformer efficiency regulations.
Climate Change talks in Bonn but also informal negotiations in other places signal that the all major parties of the

CoP 14 - Where we are on the road to Copenhagen?
In this webinar, Roman Targosz from Leonardo ENERGY will provide a summary from the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP14) held in Poznan last week. He will address some of the questions of the event:
Is a new Kyoto agreement possible and when?
The positions of various countries - is a fair climate deal possible?
Is science providing sufficient evidence, are measures agreeable?
Technology needs and projections on short and long term

Webinar - Network Losses
Monday, April 7, 2008 - 14:32
In any country, network losses are the single biggest use of electricity. In the OECD region, network losses amount for 4-10% of electricity generated. This webinar discusses the importance of network losses, their determinants and improvement potential, and how losses can be expected to evolve in the future.
Are network losses related to population density and electricity use, or do they rather depend on network design? If so, is there a large scope for improvement by changing network topology and the specification of network components such as cables and transformers, or is the current network too deeply embedded in the fabric of society, and only open to minor changes?
These topics are aimed at open discussion. We welcome participants to raise their own questions and concerns in the debate.
This page is a live document to support the discussion webinar on the above topic before and after the event. Discussion will be continuously open on this page using the comment feature.
European Power Quality Survey
Monday, August 27, 2007 - 12:53
The Power Quality Survey was conducted by the European Copper Institute (ECI) to investigate the consequences for EU industry of poor power quality among industrial sectors for which electrical energy is critical. These consequence amount to >€150bn annually, are mainly [>90%] experienced by industry and caused by power interruptions (dips, surges, transients and short interruptions). These losses represent a significant [>5%] proportion of the net profits made by the sectors under review. This Webinar presents the findings from this study, puts them into the context of social, electrical energy and business consequences and looks at courses of remedial action by making use of the significant and disturbing conclusions drawn from them.
