Interest levels were high: the DKE began work on the German Standardization Roadmap on Electrical Energy Efficiency in the autumn of 2015 together with various electrical engineering stakeholders.
Energy efficiency is a key aspect of the energy revolution. It is the cleanest, most economical and safest 'resource' - and it can be accessed immediately. Energy efficiency affects many areas and has therefore become a cross-cutting issue. Because the highly efficient use of energy is essential at all levels - from production, transport and storage through to consumption.
And this is where the work of the DKE comes in: a central document is to be created in close cooperation with all stakeholders, experts and interested parties which brings together all existing knowledge and describes the current state of the art. The Standardization Roadmap includes recommendations for action, identifies areas in which standardization is required and provides a time frame for the processing of open points.
"In addition to the work in the relevant DKE working group we are also using various social media channels (XING, LinkedIn, Twitter) to reach all those who are interested in the subject but are not yet involved in electrotechnical standardization," explain project managers Henriette Boos and Frank Steinmüller.
Publication of the Standardization Roadmap in German and English is planned to coincide with the 80th IEC General Meeting in 2016 in Frankfurt.
