4E has recently published the first Product Energy Efficiency Trends (PEET) report to assist governments with their policy development processes designed to encourage innovation and improve access to energy efficient products.
This ambitious project monitors the energy efficiency of a core set of products in 4E Member countries or regions to help governments and others to understand how product energy efficiency performance varies over time and between regions.
Undertaking comparisons over time and between regions is a complex process, requiring many factors to be taken into account. The associated Methodology Report details how these technical issues are dealt with in the PEET analysis.
The results of the PEET analyses are intended to assist government to assess their policy settings and highlight opportunities to scale up levels of ambition for energy efficient products.
As such, they can act as a trigger for more thorough investigations at a national and product level.
