b. Who's an EE Expert? Find out how much you know about testing of energy efficiency

Generally speaking, energy efficiency (EE) means to use less energy to achieve the same result or to use the same amount of energy to get more or better results. Through this computer game, you can learn more about how to test whether or not an electrical product is wisely efficient.

Here are some heads-up to set you on course for the game.

Tip : Not every energy-powered product is equally efficient in its energy use. Some are more energy efficient than others. We can know a product's energy efficiency through specific tests.

Tip : The energy efficiency of an electrical and electronic product (EEP) is closely related to its functions. The vast spectrum of EEPs perform different functions. Some convert electricity into light, such as a light bulb, and some cool air down, like an air conditioner. So a product's energy efficiency needs to be tested in line with its mode of energy use when it perform a function. Examples of energy efficiency tests for some common EEPs are listed in the table.

Tip : That table gives loads of info. Learn it by heart and then click on the picture to start the game and become an EE Expert!
