Efficient, Demand Flexible Networked Appliances (EDNA)

EDNA provides analysis and policy guidance to members and other governments aimed at improving the energy efficiency and demand flexibility of connected devices and networks.

In 2024 EDNA changed its name to reflect an increased focus on ‘demand flexible networked appliances’. These large household appliances can empower consumers and are able to react to requirements from the grid, for example to increase or decrease power consumption in response to renewable energy generation patterns, or to react to local demand constraints.

EDNA will continue its current work on data centres, and as required over time may choose to undertake further work on the efficiency of connected devices themselves as well as other related topics as they arise.
