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.
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.
The guidebook—developed by the Prayas Energy Group—provides a framework for policy-makers in different countries to conceptualize, design and implement innovative programs to accelerate market transformation to super-efficient equipment and appliances (SEE).
SEAD undertook this study in 2013 to provide programmatic and technical support to the ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) in developing a regional appliance Standards and Labeling (S&L) scheme across the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Member States.
This report establishes a global data framework and data standard for appliances. Widespread adoption of this data framework would enable decision makers to monitor markets in real time by connecting pricing, sales, and efficiency trends and facilitate international data sharing via a common data standard.
The heat pump is one of the most energy efficient technologies for heating water for household use. Energy efficiency is a key point in product advertising and marketing, and important for the policymakers who manage energy labelling and minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) programs.
