By Mapping & Benchmarking · ·
The latest Annex benchmarking report which is an international comparison of the energy performance of refrigerator-freezers and freezers is now available. This is an update of an Annex report published in 2010.
This benchmarking report examines:
- Variations in the scope and stringency of national minimum performance levels required for refrigerated appliances, and a summary of additional national policies seeking to promote refrigerated appliance efficiency;
- Key differences in product performance between countries over the 1996-2011 period resulting from policies announced and implementation to date;
- Areas of potential concern, including areas where additional or modified policy intervention may be desirable in the future to improve product energy performance;
- The potential energy savings that are currently possible, and may be possible in the future if aggressive policy intervention is undertaken.
The full report can be downloaded from here and a summary policy brief will be available in the near future.
