A “life cycle thinking” approach to assess differences in the energy use of SiC vs. Si power semiconductors
Wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductors have the potential to provide significant improvements in energy efficiency over conventional Silicon (Si) semiconductors. While the potential for energy efficiency gains is widely researched, the relation to the energy use during manufacturing processes remains insufficiently studied. This question is especially relevant for Silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductors, as there are some […]
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 report presents information on novel data centre KPIs: the Server Idle coefficient and the Data Centre Idle Coefficient.
Achievements of Energy Efficiency Appliance and Equipment Standards and Labelling Programmes: 2021 FULL Report
The complete 2021 report on the impact of standards and labelling programmes in countries around the world, drawing on nearly 400 published reports, studies and papers covering more than 100 products.
Achievements of Energy Efficiency Appliance and Equipment Standards and Labelling Programmes: 2021 SUMMARY Report
The 2021 summary report on the impact of standards and labelling programmes in countries around the world.
This report provides an overview of small network equipment (e.g. routers and modems), investigates options for policies and estimates the potential for energy savings.
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.
A summary of the literature on lifetime definitions for LEDs and LED products, including a look at failure mechanisms, accelerated life tests and test methods for estimating lifetime, and provides some recommendations. There is currently no agreement as to which test method can best estimate the lifetime of LED lighting products and the report thus addresses a key issue for regulators and industry interested in deployment of LED technologies
The report summarises the results of the EMSA Survey on the potential impact of digital technologies on electric motor driven systems in industrial companies.
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.
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.
This report describes updates to the Total Energy Model that was developed by EDNA to estimate the ‘total energy use’ of connected devices, globally.
Air conditioner (AC) / Heat Pumps (HP) Test Methods Project 2.0 – Phase 1 Findings Summary
Abstract: From cell phones to cars to data centers: The diverse electrical applications that visibly and invisibly shape our everyday life all contain switching elements made of semiconductor materials. These powerful electronic components have huge energy-savings potential that can be realized by using so-called wide-bandgap semiconductors. This is the conclusion of an expert report of […]
This Guide is the Turkish version of the Energy Audit Guide for Motor Driven Systems (originally published in 2018). This Guide gives a systematic and comprehensive overview including organisational and technical tasks to be performed during a motor system audit, along the stages of an energy audit according to ISO 50002.
