Energy efficiency and ecodesign

To achieve climate goals and protect the environment, policy requires and promotes energy efficiency measures. This produces economic benefits for manufacturers due to cost-saving measures, and consumers regard energy-efficient products as an important purchasing factor. The VDE is an expert in supporting energy efficiency technologies, standardizing product and testing requirements, expertly testing and assessing electrical products and in special appraisal services for environmental and energy audits.

Energy efficiency measures are important for protecting the climate and the environment

Chemical product safety and sustainability

Environmental protection goals and substance-related statutory requirements are in force worldwide. They form the foundations that manufacturers and distributing companies must comply with during product development.

Automotive and E-Mobility

Electronic components in the automotive industry have to work faultlessly, an important requirement, if it concerns the safety of the vehicle. Battery and control management as well as the used cables and cords have to ensure the safety of the vehicle, of course.


Batteries and Fuel Cell Systems

If manufacturers of batteries take less care on quality, there will be a decline on output. Safety could also be in danger. Malfunctioning batteries and accumulators can damage the applications. In the worst case they can catch fire or explode.

Customers who make the safe choice look for products with safety and quality labels. The VDE Testing and Certification Institute tests your products according to the current standards and awards them with all necessary labels for the national and international market.


Energy Supply

Electrical networks with its power lines and switch gear as well as additional electrical equipment constitute the classical interface between power generation and power consumption.

The future coexistence of centralized and decentralized supply systems demands an energy management based on the most advanced IT technology, the increased use of renewable energy and the introduction of large-scale automation and protection systems as well as real-time safety management. In addition to the technical challenge, it is highly important to ensure the supply quality of the public electricity networks.
