Internationally Aligned Test Methods and Performance Requirements for TVs

Policy Maker Summary from the APEC – CAST Project

This summary presents the results of an analysis of the global differences between test methodologies used to measure the energy performance of televisions, and energy performance policy requirements for televisions. It also identifies opportunities to work toward greater international harmonisation on testing and policy approaches.

SEAD Announces International Competition to Recognize World’s Most Energy-Efficient Televisions

The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative has announced a competition to recognize the most energy-efficient flat-panel televisions around the world. SEAD Global Efficiency Medals will be awarded to the most energy-efficient televisions on the market as well as to new technologies that have the potential to greatly reduce energy use in the future.

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Achieving the Three C’s of Measuring and Reporting Energy Efficiency Improvements: Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency

Because energy savings represent the absence of energy use, it is impossible to directly measure energy efficiency impacts; the credibility of the reported data is only as sound as the measurement and verification (M&V) processes, methodologies, and data that are used. Using the three C’s—Certainty, Credibility, and Consistency—builds confidence in the M&V processes, methodologies, and protocols, and thus in the reported results. 

Motors are everywhere and efficient – but they can be even better

Motors are everywhere and efficient – but they can be even better

Material and technological breakthroughs are improving the energy efficiencies of induction and other electric motors by changing how motors work and are controlled. Continued international collaboration and open dialogue, such as that carried out through the SEAD initiative, will help to further shrink motors’ share of energy consumption over the years to come.
