  • September 27, 2015 Potential Impact of Lighting and Appliance Efficiency Standards on Peak Demand - The Case of Indonesia

    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.

  • September 18, 2015 Lessons Learned From Incentive Programs for Efficient Air Conditioners

    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.

  • September 15, 2015 Energy Efficient Motors: Advantages throughout the supply chain

    Fact sheet on the benefits of energy efficient motors.

  • April 20, 2015 APEC-CAST: Internationally Aligned Test Methods and Performance Requirements for TVs

    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.
