Mr. Green's blog: California commercial and industrial fan and blower home appliance efficiency regulations
In November 29, 2018, the International Energy Agency (IEA)Technical cooperation plan for energy-saving terminal equipment (4E)Electronic equipment and network accessories (EDNA) In Stockholm, a seminar was held with the Swedish Energy Agency to discuss how connecting equipment can help realize the potential of demand response. The seminar brought together industry and government stakeholders and discussed how connection equipment can provide energy services for the future. It was part of a two-day seminar, it also involves the concept of zero network challenges for connected devices.
In his introduction, EDNA chairman Hans- Paul Siderius claimed that the key focus is demand-side flexibility and the integration of renewable energy to ensure energy supply while reducing carbon emissions. Active consumers are very important to achieve these goals, so the European Commission began to implement the preparatory study on ecological design of smart home appliances in 2014 (33rd batch)Plans to promote EU smart appliances and buildings. In order to widely introduce intelligent household appliances, energy intelligent icons have been discussed all the time; Most stakeholders like this labeling option. The historical challenge of adopting smart products stems from a series of behaviors. The lack of incentives for consumers and manufacturers leads to the lack of smart products in the market, which in turn leads to the lack of public utility incentive plans due to immature markets. Having said that, more and more intelligent products are entering the market because other non-energy benefits may help promote adoption.
at the building level, the building energy performance directive (EPBD) It is being revised, including the building automation and control system (BACS)And the requirements of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. In addition to coordination with EN standards, potential Ecodesign requirements include minimum functional and control accuracy requirements, interoperability, efficiency and demand response for certain BACS functions. In addition, as part of the plan, intelligent preparation indicators or SRI scores are being established and represent the weighted sum of various impact scores.
other topics at the seminar covered the customer's views on demand-side flexibility, including the need to use technology to reduce customer complexity, the idea of providing connection equipment for US demand-side flexibility and balancing supply and demand by adjusting prices uses dynamic rates. Finally, seminar participants agreed on the following priorities: grid resilience, security and security, interoperability, common interests and user convenience, and data privacy.
