Energy Efficiency Testing

Our labs are equipped to test and certify energy-using products to worldwide energy efficiency requirements and standards

Meet Increasingly Stringent Standards for energy Consumption

Energy efficiency testing assesses a wide range of products – from consumer electronics to toys to household appliances – and measures how much energy they consume while running, as well as when in standby and off mode, among other tests. These tests demonstrate that the products meet increasingly stringent standards for consumption by energy-using goods.

Regulatory requirements and consumer expectations are driving the demand for electrical equipment and appliances that have been tested and verified by an independent third party for their energy efficiency. Appliances that demonstrate greater energy efficiency than comparable products are more widely accepted by regulators and consumers and enjoy an important advantage in a competitive marketplace.

our energy efficiency Testing services

TÜV SÜD’s energy efficiency verification services have been developed to support the efforts of manufacturers, importers, and retailers to achieve compliance with energy efficiency regulations and voluntary energy efficiency programs. In addition, TÜV SÜD’s global Energy Efficiency Centers of Excellence are equipped to test and certify energy-using products to worldwide energy efficiency requirements and standards, making us a single source for testing and certification services for all types of electrical equipment and appliances.

TÜV SÜD is a recognized testing and certification body in compliance with US (ENERGY STAR), Canadian (NRCan) and EU laws, as well as other jurisdictions.

Energy efficiency testing includes a range of specific tests and assessments intended to evaluate various design features and use considerations of a given product. Such tests can include:

  • Energy consumption measurements
  • Energy efficiency assessments
  • Testing of power consumption in off mode
  • Testing of power consumption in standby mode
  • Availability of standby or power-saving functions
  • Power management features
  • Production of reports
  • Allocation of certificates
