Resources & Tools
CLASP’s innovative tools empower global leaders to reshape and improve global markets.
Potential of Energy Efficiency Standards & Labels
Technical Potential of Standards & Labels
If all new appliances and equipment sold in major economies used the most energy efficient technologies available on the market, the energy saved each year by 2030 would equal nearly 16 exajoules – more than 20% of global electricity demand in 2014.
Energy Saved by Today’s Standards & Labels
Current appliance and equipment standards in SEAD economies already have tremendous impact. By 2030, they will save the equivalent of 243 500 MW power plants – more than Africa’s total electricity consumption in 2014.
