Ecos Research recently completed a report for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) that offers a high-level view of available battery charging products and trends, with a focus on overall efficiency and energy losses in standby and active modes. This report also reviews the status of test procedures and regulations for battery systems.
In the 15 years our researchers have been studying televisions, we’ve encountered a number of surprises along the way. In this report, written for the NRDC, we show how the energy use of a given TV model can vary quite widely, depending on how we measure it and how it is configured.
Recent studies have demonstrated the potential to accelerate the adoption of heat pump dryers, which reduce the energy required to dry clothes by about 50% and can produce $4 Billion in annual savings for consumers.
