The second policy briefing brochure in the series looks at distribution transformers.
Electricity distribution losses vary from 4% to more than 20%. The adoption of efficient Distribution Transformers could save Europe about 18.5 TWh per year, equivalent to about 7 million tCO2/year.
This brochure gives insight into technical as well as environmental, economical and geopolitical advantages, drawing the business cases for adopting energy efficient Distribution Transformers. TCO, or Total Cost of Ownership, is the buzzword and the philosophy leading to optimal investments in efficient equipment.
The most significant barriers hindering this move are analysed and followed by a number of opportunities to overcome them, focusing particularly on regulatory changes that give an incentive to distribution operators to invest in efficient transformers.Log in to post comments
