We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
This Code of Conduct is prepared by the JRC , following the discussions and decisions of the ad-hoc working group composed by independent experts, Member States representatives and representatives of industry.
Power supplies contribute substantially to the electricity consumption of households in Europe. Further savings can be expected from the application of efficient power supplies in electronics, including ICT, entertainment systems, appliances, etc. When addressing efficiency of power supplies, also power quality should be taken into account. Although applying electronics in power supplies can increase efficiency and lower no load losses, it should not adversely affect the power quality.
