Abstract

This report summarises the result of a 2006 in-depth survey on the electricity consumption and efficiency of equipment in buildings in the enlarged EU and Candidate Countries, together with the present market share of efficient appliances and equipment. One of the aims of this report is to show the present status of electricity consumption for the main appliances and equipments, and on the base of the best available data estimate the saving potential for electricity in buildings in EU Member States and Candidate Countries. It also describes the policy actions introduced at EU level and some of the national policies. The report focuses also on motor driven systems, a horizontal technology present in all types of industry. In particular electric motors are responsible for 10 to 20% losses of the above indicated electricity consumption in the process of converting electrical energy into mechanical energy.
