AMEE now offers algorithms that model energy use for US appliances, based on data representing typical annual energy consumption for each make and model of appliance as provided by Energy Star. Energy Star is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy which issues energy efficiency ratings for most US household appliances allowing manufacturers to gain a recognized standard for energy efficiency.

Using the data
This new data covers a wide range of household appliances from fridges to laptops, with hundreds of appliance models in each category. The data set includes 14 separate categories and over 5,600 data items. The data provides an average value of kWh per year for each appliance model, which is then converted to carbon dioxide emissions using AMEE’s country- and region-specific emission factors.
