EU EUP Directive implementation date in sight, but the reporter learned from China Electric Institute, China is still about 8 percent had not export electric standby shutdown EUP directive related energy consumption, and most enterprises also have do not know. Expert interview call, standby power consumption issue should arouse the concern of the whole society.
It is understood that, in our country, energy consumption of electrical appliances than the international standard of 25% -60% higher. Shanghai Energy Conservation Association survey showed that in the present family in Shanghai, about 15 kinds of
Power consumption in standby mode more serious, the city’s 6.5 million households lost power on some more than 3.12 million degrees. However, except
Addition, our other home appliances on standby power consumption has not issued the standard, companies and consumers have a lack of attention.
Chinese Academy of green technology Electric Wang Ling, deputy director of the Institute told reporters that the EU EUP directive made in the harsh environment the technical requirements on electrical appliances standby, shut down power consumption requirements, has entered the stage of the Advisory Forum, the relevant measures fastest will be introduced late this year or early next year. Product coverage of the requirements for household appliances, home IT products, consumer audio and video products, toys, leisure and sports products. Implemented a year after the product launch in the market, off the maximum power consumption shall not exceed 1 W, standby and shutdown shall not exceed the maximum power consumption of 2 watts; the implementation of four years, this indicator will be increased to not more than 0.5 watts. Through investigation they found that most domestic enterprises do not understand this. Relevant domestic energy requirements are higher than the EU EUP Directive 1-2 watts in testing found that some domestic
Standby power consumption machine for more than 10 watts, much higher than the EU requirements. According to the estimated electric institute, now about 8 percent of domestic products can not meet this requirement, enterprises to conduct technical research to solve this problem in order to successfully enter the EU market. And after the introduction of the standard, the United States and Japan will follow suit to make demands, domestic enterprises must have attention.
Ling pointed out that, in fact, reduce the standby power consumption is not completely blocked in the technical level, low standby power consumption of the design cost is not high, but this lack of attention to the whole society. “In order to attract the attention of consumers, many products to the idle screen doing more and more beautiful, more and more a collection of features, but consumers do not understand is that this will greatly increase the standby power consumption.” Lack of national standards, companies also ignored this problem. In addition,
Transformation of the old models of products up to the production line to do “major surgery”, so companies often do not bother transformation.
The international community to take positive action on standby power consumption, while domestic energy consumption on standby problems are lack of knowledge. Ling believes that domestic enterprises and consumers should be actively disseminated the idea of reducing standby power consumption, making consumers aware pretty complete standby standby interface and features are to the cost of high energy consumption and ultimately lead to low product standby power consumption changes. Meanwhile, enterprises should actively import the eco-design, improve the environmental performance of products.
It is understood that from this year, Shanghai has begun promoting the “1-watt plan”, within 5 years, Shanghai 20% of households (about 1.3 million) of household appliances, power consumption in standby mode will not exceed 1 W, implementation of the project will make Shanghai the next day at least than it is now saving more than 624,000 degrees. To promote the scheme, the Shanghai Energy Conservation Association is taking various initiatives, including a growing number of people to grasp the appliances in standby mode for energy saving measures, and actively promote energy-saving appliances standby devices.
From the China Quality Certification Center has learned that the center has established a special energy-saving products the government procurement office, although the energy-saving product certification is voluntary, but only through “section” the word-certified products to enter the government procurement list of energy-saving products, This means that compulsory purchase energy-saving products through government system, the Chinese energy-saving products will have substantial competitive advantage. The other message that the relevant government departments are formulating policies, energy-saving products will enjoy tax and other preferential policies, and the policy basis for the implementation is still the list of energy-saving product certification.
