The Enervee® Score

Actionable energy efficiency

The Enervee Score helps everyone find the most energy efficient products by translating product performance and energy consumption into simple 0-100 score.

The higher the Enervee Score the more energy efficient that particular product in its category. The Enervee Score is normalized across a category, allowing consumers to instantly understand and compare the true energy performances of their shortlisted choices.

The Enervee Score is also dynamic – updated daily for all products in a category. For example if Samsung releases a more energy OLED TV next week, the Enervee Score will recognize that new addition to the category within 24 hours and adjust the relative Enervee Scores for every other television in the category.

Enervee follows industry standards on performance and energy efficiency ratings from the Department of Energy. For categories that are not regulated by the DOE, such as video game consoles or tablets, we have collaborated with key stakeholders to develop our own energy efficiency rating methodologies.
