Standby power

The Standby Power analysis undertaken was based on a collated dataset that includes samples of 156 different product types from 7 different projects or sources. As such, the data did not lend itself to the normal Annex methodology. Consequently the only output for this product is the benchmarking report. The product definition is included in the benchmarking report and there are no country mapping reports.

Standby power Benchmarking Report

Standby power Benchmarking Report

This international comparison of the standby power performance for ten categories of household appliance was undertaken under the main 4E implementing agreement in collaboration with the Standby Power Annex. Data, which was sourced from a wide range of projects, suggests a generally improving trend in average standby energy consumption for eight of the ten product categories. While regulation and in particular the early signalling of regulation appear to be working, and particularly when implemented through ‘horizontal’ measures applicable to most products, there are still product specific challenges including those associated with the network standby.
