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.
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 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 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.
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.
Numerous countries use public funds to subsidize residential electricity for a variety of socioeconomic objectives. These subsidies lower the value of energy efficiency to the consumer while raising it for the government.
This report retrospectively analyzes some of the potential impacts of product energy efficiency policy in Sweden by examining possible correlations between policy implementation, historical and real‐time price trends, energy efficiency improvement trends, and life‐cycle cost trends for a variety of product markets including: (1) refrigerators, (2) clothes washers, (3) dishwashers, and (4) televisions.
This four-part study presents an overview of distribution transformer losses globally, the savings potential, the technology options for improvement, and a comparison of some of the efficiency programmes from around the world.
