International Database of Efficient Appliances

Purpose 

International Database of Efficient Appliances (IDEA) automatically compiles data from a wide variety of online sources--including online retailers, manufacturer websites, and government efficiency databases--to create a unified repository of information on efficiency, price, and features for a wide range of energy-consuming products across global markets. Data from IDEA enables researchers and policymakers to gain a complete and up-to-date picture of the status of appliance energy efficiency in various markets.
