Kevin Lane has 25 years’ international experience in various technical and managerial roles in energy efficiency, especially focussing on lights and appliances. He has successfully contributed to over a dozen European energy end-use studies commissioned as preparation for EU product policy (e.g. EU labeling, minimum efficiency standards, and voluntary agreements), including UK impact assessments. He has supported the development of standards and labels in various other countries (including EU, People's Republic of China, US, Australia, and Viet Nam). While at the Environmental Change Institute of the University of Oxford, he created and developed the DECADE residential end-use model, which has been used as the basis for the UK Government’s impact assessment for multiple Eco-design measures.
