Examples - savings with ZERO1 embedded in appliance.
|Electrically height adjustable table||97% savings|
|Audio & multimedia products||76% savings|
|Circulating pump||20% savings|
Explanation: The animation first shows the electricity consumption per year for an Electrical adjustable table without ZERO1 embedded. When the table is not raised / lowered, there is a constant consumption. When it raised / lowered, the power consumption increases obviously. Note, however, the constant power consumption, when the table is not activated - this is standby power. It is calculated at 17.5 per KwH year.
Then, the animation shows how power consumption is reduced, with ZERO1 embedded in the electrical adjustable table. The standby power is removed - thus there is virtually no power consumption when the table is at rest. When the table is raised / lowered, there is obviously a higher consumption.
Explanation: The animation first shows the electricity consumption per years for an audio product without ZERO1 embedded. When not used, but simply says "ready"(standby), there is a constant consumption. This is standby power. It is calculated at 16.8 per KwH per year.
Then, the animation shows how power consumption is reduced, with ZERO1 component embedded in the apparatus. It is the standby power, which is removed - resulting is a substantially less power consumption when the apparatus is not used but merely stands on ("standby"). When the apparatus is switched on in order to be active, there are of course a larger power consumption.
1% of the world's CO2 emissions caused by the standby power.
15% of the world's total power consumption amounts to standby power.
A typical family in Denmark and Europe, uses approximately between 270-337 EUR (£250 – $400) annually on standby power. Companies spend significantly more.
RentPolitically there is so much focus on standby power and energy waste. European legislation has set limits for appliances standby power per. As of January 1st 2013 the limit is halved to 0.5W.
Products that do not comply with the limits may not be marketed in the EU (but it does appear once in a while :-).
The rest of the world - including the US and Asia - squint strongly to European legislation and limits.
