Tools for Getting Started

For experts in countries and regions with fewer resources initiating new appliance energy efficiency developments, use CLASP's Survey Tools.

Quality data regarding equipment ownership and use patterns are the technical foundation for the assessment and development of any energy efficiency policy. In particular, standards and labeling (S&L) programs for residential and commercial products depend on accurate and locally-relevant information at the level of an individual household or commercial enterprise.

Residential and commercial survey datasets provide an indication of ownership rates, common product classes, and use patterns for a variety of products. In addition, they yield market information such as brand, model type and price paid for common equipment. Recognizing the value of facilitating the collection of quality data for use in S&L programs, CLASP, with the support of the United Nations Foundation, has developed a publicly available set of tools as a resource to program managers and analysts.
