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.
This paper provides an analysis of costs and benefits of several options to improve the efficiency of ceiling fans to assess the global potential for electricity savings and green house gas (GHG) emission reductions.
This paper seeks to inform future policy and program design by categorizing the main elements of incentive programs from around the world.
The primary aim of this study was to estimate the energy efficiency improvement potential arising from adopting best motor repair practices in five selected economies: China, Japan, New Zealand, the United States, and Vietnam.
The SEAD Standards & Labelling Computers Collaboration has investigated the potential for, benefits of, and barriers to harmonisation of computer test methodologies, product definitions, and performance specifications. This report is the first in a series of guidance documents and tools that SEAD is developing to facilitate harmonisation of energy efficiency policies for computers.
