This joint report with the Users TCP investigates ‘usability’ issues associated with energy smart digital devices.
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.
Provides guiding principles to policy makers for the development of digitalisation strategies that incorporate demand flexibility and intelligent efficiency applications as key objectives.
This policy brief sets out a guide for the development of country roadmaps for consumer device demand flexibility.
Provides policy guidance for encouraging the development of consumer devices which are capable of ‘energy smart digital functionality’
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.
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 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.
