IEA 4E Annex Electronic Devices and Networks Annex - EDNA (working period 2017 – 2019) Task 3: "Intelligent efficiency". Project: "Basket of products testing"
The "Electronic Devices and Networks Annex “EDNA” has emerged from the background of the global increase of electronic devices and digital solutions, which requires the evaluation of the energy efficiency of these devices. Energy efficiency measures should be developed and improved, and technological and regulatory challenges need to be addressed. The aim of EDNA is to develop policy and strategy recommendations for decision-makers, concerning network connected devices.
Promotion of energy efficiency of poly-phase electric AC motors and motor systems in relevant applications as pumps, fans, compressors and mechanical drives that are generally used in industry, infrastructure and large buildings. This work also included new technologies such as frequency inverters (adjustable speed drive) and permanent magnet motors.
In the Mapping and Benchmarking work (formerly M&B Annex) the following product were analyzed: domestic refrigeration (update), dishwashers, settop boxes, transformers and lights, for which this report includes most relevant results and the related M&B publications. It also introduces the 2015-2016 work on motors, liquid chillers, and water boilers.
The goal is the active participation and representation of the Austrian position and interests in EDNA as well as exchange with and dissemination of results. Austria will contribute to Tasks C “Policies for Connected Devices”, and lead Task D “Total Energy Model”. In addition, Austria also participates and contributes to the “Centre of Excellence”, as well as to the project “Basket of products testing”.
The IEA 4E Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) aims to evaluate the efficiency potential related to the integration of Wide Bandgap (WBG) based power semiconductors for relevant applications and to act as an independent knowledge platform. In the first work period, energy savings have been initially assessed for selected applications, a roadmap for WBG materials was derived and the work plan for PECTA's Phase 2 was defined.
The Power Electronic Conversion Technology Annex (PECTA) is one of 4 Annexes of the IEA 4E TCP. PECTA shall assess the efficiency benefit of the emerging WBG technology for different relevant power electronic applications and furthermore serves as an independent knowledge platform for policy makers and all kind of parties and stakeholders that are interested in WBG.
The goal of the Annex Electric Motor Systems is to raise awareness on the large savings potential in motor systems, while showing the realization method of such a path. After publishing the „Policy Guidelines for Electric Motor Systems“ and recommendations for carrying out energy audits for motor systems based on international standards Austria analysed the impact of industrial automation on electricity consumption and the motor market.
The goal of the Annex Electric Motor Systems is to raise awareness on the large savings potential in motor systems, while showing the realization method of such a path. After publishing the policy and audit guidelines for motor systems Austria leads the task „New Industrial Developments and Digitalization in Motor Systems“.
4E TCP promotes energy efficient end use equipment. It focuses on electric motor systems, electric household products, lighting, electronic devices and networks as well as power electronic conversion.
The goal of the Annex Electric Motor Systems is to raise awareness on the large savings potential in motor systems, while showing the realization method of such a path. Currently, Austria leads the task Energy Audits for Motor Systems to develop recommendations for carrying out energy audits for motor systems based on international standards.
