Classification of digitalisation technologies for electric motor driven systems

This report by EMSA provides a classification of different digitalisation technologies applied for motor systems. The following technologies are analysed: sensors, Internet of Things, intelligent control, data analytics, real-time monitoring, artificial intelligence, digital twins, cloud based services, augmented reality, additive manufacturing, robotics, drones.

Retrofitting Connectivity for Energy Benefits

This report examines the retrofit solutions on the market today to identify those that could be leveraged to achieve energy benefits in otherwise unconnected residential products.

Harnessing IoT for Energy Benefits

This report examines the landscape of residential IoT products and the functions within those products that can be leveraged to yield energy benefits. These functions include monitoring via on- board sensors and internal or external data feeds, and controls that can reside within or external to the product. We examine the extent to which products possess these functions today, the energy benefits products can achieve with those functions, and the appropriateness of adding additional functions to achieve additional energy benefits.

Policy Guidance for Smart, Energy-Saving Consumer Devices

This report provides considerations for policy makers to encourage ‘smart’ consumer devices which save energy and provide demand flexibility. It includes key findings for the prioritisation of consumer devices and policy recommendations.

Policy Brief – Upstream Consequences from Connected Devices

Connecting devices to the internet has profound implications for energy use, in three areas: Digitalisation, Wasted Energy and Upstream Consequences. This policy brief covers the third topic – Upstream Consequences. This policy brief is based on two EDNA reports: Total Energy Model for Connected Devices and Intelligent Efficiency for Data Centres & Wide Area Networks

Policy Brief – Wireless Charging Energy Use

This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Global Forecast of Energy Use for Wireless Charging, which estimates the additional global energy that would be consumed if wireless charging is adopted for a wide range of small consumer devices

Policy Brief – Energy Harvesting Technologies for IoT

This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Energy Harvesting Technologies for IoT Edge Devices, which explores the potential to deploy Energy Harvesting Technologies (EHTs) to convert energy from the surroundings into electricity, in order to power small internet of things (IoT) devices

Test Procedures for Measuring Network Standby Power

This paper examines elements of existing test procedures that address network standby in some way. This includes horizontal test procedures that cover standby and network standby for a wide range of products, as well as product-specific procedures where network functionality is a common or essential feature of the product
