This report presents an analysis of the cost and benefit of improving efficiency of air conditioners in India, based on a bottom-up engineering analysis of key AC components such as compressors and heat exchangers.
The amount of energy used during the active mode of desktop and notebook computers is an important consideration in overall computer energy efficiency. Despite this, active mode energy efficiency is not addressed by any major energy efficiency initiative. It is shown that some computer performance benchmark applications on the market may hold promise to support the inclusion of active mode energy efficiency specifications within energy efficiency initiatives, but that further work is required in the area.
The levels of energy efficiency found amongst computers offering the same levels of functionality can be highly divergent. With this factor in mind computers have been addressed by many environmental initiatives around the world ranging from voluntary eco-labels to mandatory regulations.
