Numerous countries use taxpayer funds to subsidize residen- tial electricity for a variety of socio-economic objectives. These subsidies lower the value of energy efficiency to the consumer while raising it for the government.
This report presents the results of an analysis, commissioned by the U.S. Department of Energy, of Air Conditioner (AC) efficiency in support of the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative. The International Energy Studies group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in collaboration with Navigant Consulting Inc. performed the analysis. SEAD aims to transform the global market by increasing the penetration of highly efficient equipment and appliances.
The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Global Efficiency Medal competition is designed to enable the market to move toward higher efficiency by spurring innovation among manufacturers and increasing the market share of efficient products.
The objective of this analysis is to identify potential ceiling fan efficiency improvements and their incremental costs to assess the cost effectiveness of these options and to provide approximate global and country-specific estimates of the total energy savings potential of these improvements.
This document illustrates the key issues and considerations involved in implementing energy-efficient public procurement.
This Guidebook on Best Practice Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement (MV&E) for Appliance Standards & Labelling provides practical information on compliance frameworks based on the experiences of existing S&L programmes. It complements the previous guidebook and is designed as a manual for policy makers, programme administrators, and others involved in the design and implementation of S&L programmes worldwide.
This study analyzes the financial impacts on consumers of minimum efficiency performance standards (MEPS) for appliances that could be implemented in 13 major economies around the world.
This document provides an overview of the scope, applications, scenario definitions, and results of LBNL’s Bottom Up Energy Analysis System (BUENAS), as well as the details of the methodology used to construct national level energy demand scenarios.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are in the process of establishing test procedures for televisions. Therefore, CLASP is investigating the efficacy of the current test procedures used for television energy efficiency to identify improvements that can be made.
This cooling benchmarking study, which was funded by the Collaborative Labeling and Appliance Standards Program (CLASP), intends to provide policy makers and energy efficiency (EE) program managers with tools allowing for the comparison of the efficiency of air conditioning (AC) products under the different test procedures and EE metrics that are currently used in major world economies.
