This report attempts to shed light on the global landscape and enable meaningful comparisons at a macro-level which are helpful and necessary to policymakers in the development of sound and optimized energy efficiency policies.
This paper proposes recommendations to policy makers based on a real time data collection exercise carried out in the UK, to analyze the “real world usage” of network connected devices. The paper also maps out how to replicate the project approach and methodology in the US and other regions, to determine whether similar opportunities exist in other areas.
This report explores the dramatic global increase in ownership of networked devices, and probes the hidden costs of rising energy demand to maintain a network connection for these products. The report describes technologies and technical solutions as well as a range of policy options that are available to reduce energy waste. More Data, Less Energy is a joint publication between the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the IEA Implementing Agreement for Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment (IEA 4E).
This report presents findings of an extensive investigation of the energy efficiency standards and labelling programs in place in China, the EU, India, Japan, and the USA.
