Horizontal Policy






 Power Requirements for Functions  - Xergy Consulting (52 pages)

 This report builds on the previous work (ECOVA's Mapping Secondary

Product Functions report) examining in greater detail several high-priority

secondary functions to further quantify their power requirements and

provide the technical background that might be required to advance

horizontal policy action associated with these functions. 









 Mapping Secondary Product Functions to Products and 

Operational Modes - ECOVA (51 pages)

This project comprehensively examined secondary functions for the

first time by identifying, defining, and classifying the relevant functions

across three broad categories of consumer products: major appliances,

home entertainment, and office products. the project conducted market

research to identify the prevalence of each secondary function across

products and to determine how frequently those functions are used in

various modes of device operation. Tables or “maps” were generated of 

each function to identify clusters of functions with the greatest horizontal

applicability across different products and modes of operation.








 Provision of a horizontal policy approach to standby power 

BIO Intelligence Service

(52 pages). This report presents a framework for analysing policies at an

international level that aim to address standby power in electrical end-use

equipment.  This framework is used to analyse several options for an

internationally harmonised approach to standby power, horizontally across

all power modes.

Standby Power and Low Energy Networks : Issues and Directions

Energy Efficient Strategies 
(150 pages). This report plays a crucial role in identifying the issues

surrounding network standby and why existing methods for dealing with

standby power and low power mode are not directly transferrable to the

problem.  The report identifies a number of areas where the existing

knowledge is insufficient and proposes new research be undertaken to fill

the gaps.

 Estimating Stock Average Low Power Mode Attributes 

Methodology for 4E Standby Annex - Energy Efficient Strategies

(19 pages). This report proposes a uniform international methodology 
to determine stock average attributes for low power modes based on

information for new products and the total stock and turnover of

products in normal use.  The author aims to provide the basis for a

consistent approach which will allow accurate estimates of low power

mode trends and facilitate intercountry comparisons. 





 4E-APP-EU Standby Workshop, Vienna March 2010
31 participants from 20 countries met inVienna,Austria, to discuss a wide

range of programs and policies to quantify and reduce standby power

consumption.  Standby practitioners, industry representatives, technical

experts and government representatives from around the world, shared

information on current standby activities and agreed on the need for

close cooperation and continued sharing of information and collection

methodologies at a national, regional and global level.  Below is a short

summary of the event or alternatively you can access the more detailed report.
