During the last 10 years, IEC has developed a comprehensive set of standards for measuring losses and classifying the efficiency of electric motors and converters. These are the IEC 60034-2-x, IEC 60034-30-x and IEC 61800-9-x series. The new IE5 efficiency class, which is only used for inverter-fed motors, is designed to promote new engine technologies, which can be visibly distinguished from established motors. Th
Energy management systems and digital technologies for industrial energy efficiency and productivity
The IEA is hosting a workshop in Paris on 12 and 13 December to examine the energy efficiency benefits arising from energy management systems, such as ISO 50001 and GB/T 23331, and digital technologies within the industry sector and what policies or measures can be deployed by government to incentivise their greater uptake and effectiveness.
he essential goals of the CEDE initiative are to provide comprehensive information concerning the ongoing transition of Central European energy sector driven by the implementation of new technologies. We aim to demonstrate how Central European countries are incrementally transforming their energy sector in order to contribute to the EU’s climate policy objectives and to comply with the Paris Agreement commitments.
Energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective ways to reach the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement and the European Union’s climate and energy objectives. Buildings represent the largest economic potential for energy efficiency. While the most developed economies need to accelerate the decarbonisation of their existing building stock, emerging economies need to move towards the construction of zero emission, efficient and resilient buildings.
The economic crisis started in 2008 has had an impact on GDP as well as on energy consumption. Both fell significantly in 2009, before rebounding in 2010, but from 2007 to 2014, energy consumption in EU decreased by 11%, while GDP recovered its 2007 level.
