Environmental consequences and supply security of energy are currently of major concern. Inefficient energy management in electric and electronic equipment (EEE) represents a significant share of energy wasted in developed countries. Although power consumption of EEE should be addressed during design, no comprehensive method has yet been developed. This paper introduces a new Design for Energy Efficiency method, and details one of its tools. The tool uses a structured inventory of guidelines to be implemented during design and will help identify constructive design strategies for products.
