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.
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 Centres 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, Canadian 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:
