Policy Brief – The Energy Efficiency Potential and Application Readiness of Wide Band Gap Technology
Power electronics condition and control the conversion and flow of electricity, using solid-state electrical devices to handle a wide
Technologies, systems and applications incorporating power electronic conversion devices and modules are defining many aspects of our modern society, making possible higher living
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 second topic – Wasted Energy
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
This is one of the latest articles published by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) related to wide bandgap technology, and its potential promising applications for SiC and GaN Semiconductors.
In this report, we have built on the modeling methodology published in a recent white paper by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Suzanne Foster Porter of Kannah Consulting
The objective of this study is to develop a quantitative model of the “total energy use” of connected devices, globally. This report (and model) aims to quantify the total additional energy that results from devices becoming connected to a communications network
This report discusses the energy consumption of data centres (DC) and the wide area network (WAN) which connects computers and other devices together on the internet. These are complex
PECTA Pre-scoping study – New power electronic materials and devices and its impact on the energy efficiency – Assessment Study for 4E Annex preparation
In the beginning of 2017, a new Annex to the IEA 4E TCP (Technology Collaboration Program of Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment) has been planned. The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is designed as a platform to assess the efficiency benefit of using the emerging WBG technology. This report is part of the PECTA preparation […]
This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Intelligent Efficiency – A Case Study of Barriers and Solutions – Smart Homes. Energy efficiency policy makers need to better understand
This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Network Connected Audio Products – Measurements and Analysis of Network Standby Consumption, which focuses on larger audio products that use WiFi to communicate. The report uses
The 4E Technology Collaboration Program wants to gain more insight into the effectiveness of voluntary agreements (VAs) in improving the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment
Voluntary Agreements (VAs) are one type of policy measure used by governments to stimulate the development and uptake of energy efficiency appliances and equipment. This Policy Brief focuses mainly on VAs made between a government and industry actors, where industry has taken the initiative
