A new report developed in collaboration with the SEAD Initiative, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Implementing Agreement on Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment (4E) outlines the historic achievements of energy efficiency standards and labeling programs.
This paper uses LBNL (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)’s BUENAS (Bottom-Up Energy Analysis System) model to forecast demand reductions from energy efficiency in a major developing country – Indonesia. The resulting analysis finds that peak load may increase 3 times in Indonesia over the next 20 years in the business-as-usual case, primarily driven by space cooling with an important component from lighting and refrigerators. Applying BUENAS efficiency scenarios of cost-effective potential and best available technology indicates a potential peak load reduction of 13% and 37% in 2030, respectively.
This report focuses on financial incentive programs that aim to mitigate the energy consumption attributable to the growing stock of ACs. This report also describes how incentive programs can be designed to address other pressing concerns related to growing AC use, such as challenges to power supply reliability resulting from increased peak demand and the global warming potential (GWP) of AC refrigerants.
Fact sheet on the benefits of energy efficient motors.
This report presents results of an analysis undertaken in 2014 to evaluate the global differences between i) test methodologies used to measure the energy performance of televisions and ii) energy performance policy requirements for televisions.
This paper presents a draft specification for demand-response ready air conditioners in India, building from international experiences and from existing International Electrotechnical Commission standards.
These guidelines from the IEA 4E Electric Motor Systems Annex aim to provide assistance to policymakers who wish to design and to implement a strategy to encourage the greater energy efficiency of electric motors and motor systems in industry in their jurisdiction.
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.
As an energy-intensive mainstream product, residential refrigerators present a significant opportunity to reduce electricity consumption through energy efficiency improvements. Refrigerators expend a considerable amount of electricity during normal use, typically consuming between 100 to 1,000 kWh of electricity per annum.
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.
