EU-funded researchers of the project G.EN.ESI have developed an online software platform to help household appliance designers make their products more energy efficient.
Energy consumption has become a key consideration for product manufacturers. The residential/domestic sector makes up about 20 % of global energy consumption, with greenhouse gas emissions from the sector exceeding 35 %. Household appliances contribute greatly to this energy consumption.
The project’s software platform helps product designers make ecological design choices without losing sight of cost.
