The website of the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative

The SEAD resource library serves as a central repository for users to access all products, such as technical analyses and energy cost calculators, produced by the SEAD working groups. Additional resources related to energy efficiency standards and labels, such as news articles and recently published studies, are also posted to the resource library.

  • Reports and Studies

    Reports and studies relevant to SEAD activities and energy efficiency standards and labels.

  • Procurement Tools

    The SEAD Procurement Working Group has partnered with the Alliance to Save Energy to develop a series of procurement tools for product categories of particular interest to SEAD member countries.

  • Product Resource Summaries

    The Product-specific Resource Summaries are working documents meant to catalog publicly available information relevant to the development of standards and labels. These documents will be updated frequently as new information becomes available.

  • Product Technical Analyses

    SEAD has completed a range of energy efficiency opportunity analyses focused on televisions, personal computer monitors, room air conditioners and ceiling fans. These studies were conducted by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), in collaboration with organisations such as India's Prayas Energy Group and Navigant Ltd.
