This report analyses the energy use of mobile devices, compares policies and identifies policy gaps.
The final report from the IEA 4E Solid State Lighting Annex’s 2017 Interlaboratory comparison (IC 2017). This comparison had 36 participating laboratories from 19 countries with a total of 42 goniophotometric instruments, the largest interlaboratory comparison of such equipment ever undertaken. This comparison investigated the level of agreement in measurements of SSL products by various […]
This controls validation method aims to provide a uniform method of test which will validate native control operation and performance criteria for residential air conditioners and heat pumps with variable speed compressors. This method is intended to be used as a confirmation against regulatory tests in which modulating component(s) are overridden.
This research aims to develop an internationally applicable load-based test method for variable capacity ACs and HPs and has 4 Phases. This report discusses the findings of Phase 2 (Investigative Testing of Key Issues), as well as the research team’s recommendations for Phase 3 work.
Air conditioner (AC) / Heat Pumps (HP) Test Methods Project 2.0 – Phase 1 Findings Summary
This report is a comparative review of test procedures and efficiency metrics for room air conditioners across six countries, as well as the ISO standard. The findings of this report are intended to inform the efforts of policy makers to evaluate where greater consistency between test methods and metrics may be beneficial.
This Policy Brief is based on studies by the IEA 4E Technology Collaboration Programme (4E TCP) into energy efficiency policy measures for pumps, fans and compressors, and the
The 4E Electric Motor Systems Annex (EMSA) promotes the opportunities for energy efficiency in motor systems by disseminating best practice information worldwide. It supports the development of internationally aligned technical standards and

Benchmarking Report for Domestic Gas and Electric, Storage, Instantaneous and Heat Pump Water Heaters
This Benchmarking Report seeks to compare the performance of storage, instantaneous and heat pump water heaters available in a number of national markets by type, between type and by energy source
This document summarises the first part of an investigation into policy options for harmonising standards and regulations for Motor Driven Units (MDUs), focusing on pumps, fans and compressors. Part 1 describes existing standards and regulations for MDUs in economies that account for 85% of global motor system electricity use
This Policy Guideline investigates policy options for harmonising standards and regulations for Motor Driven Units (MDUs) in two parts. This report (Part 1) describes existing standards and regulations
