About a third of transmission and distribution losses took place in distribution transformers (DTs), thus DTs represent a considerable potential for energy, carbon and cost savings through policy and standard intervention within APEC.
The Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) secretariat divides the project Distribution Transformer Survey: Estimate of energy saving potential from mandatory efficiency standards (MEPS) (EWG 15 12A) into two parts, one is the distribution transformer survey (international work), and the other is the distribution transformer survey (China work).
Furthermore, APEC secretariat awarded Zhong Biao Standard Technology Research Institute Co. Ltd (ZBSTRI) the distribution transformer survey (China work) project in line with the APEC Regulatory Cooperation Process Mechanism on Trade-Related Standards and Technical Regulations, and the project overseer is the China National Institute of Standardization. The project aims at assessing the potential of energy savings and GreenHouse Gas (GHG) emission reduction related to increases of Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) for Distribution Transformers (DTs), sharing Chinese successful Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling (EES&L) programs’ experiences with APEC economies.
Two reports have been separately accomplished. The international work report (Volume 1) was carried out by Econoler Canda, which presented experience analysis, strategic national roadmaps of other APEC economies for DTs on introducing or raising mandatory MEPS. The China work report (Volume 2) consists of four parts, the first part is enterprise questionnaire, the second part is policies and standards collection related to energy efficient DTs’ promotion and application, the third part is current market status and energy efficiency data collection, and the fourth part is energy saving potential’s estimation & market analysis from energy efficiency standards and policies.
Therefore, the reports of Volume 1 and Volume 2 should all be consulted to have a complete picture of the APEC distribution transformer survey project.
