Enervee Score® 2.0

Making energy efficiency actionable.

Product cards

It all starts with a number.

The Enervee Score® changes how we make purchases for our homes, delivering consistently more energy-smart choices. It does this by translating product performance and energy usage into a clear 0-100 score.

Calculated daily for all models across more than 20 product categories, the Enervee Score® makes energy efficiency visible. For the first time, the market for efficiency is active; consumers can finally choose to make the most energy-smart decisions.

The Enervee Score® improves how we choose for our homes.

The Enervee Score® effect is seen consistently across product categories, consumer types and buying conditions.

When using IDEAL Marketplace, in-market shoppers' choices are typically both more efficient and better priced than the market average, often outperforming even those products with rebates attached.

People choose more efficient products (here, 12% more efficient TVs) when the Enervee Score® is present.

One-time behavior change. Long-term benefits.

By affecting one-time buying decisions, the Enervee Score® unlocks long-term energy savings across the lifetime of the purchase, thanks to it being super-efficient in the first place.

Energy savings from shifting 30% of 2015 product sales for 4 product categories to Enervee Score® 90+

Calculating the Enervee Score®

The higher the Enervee Score®, the more efficient that product is, relative to all other relevant products in its category. Normalized across categories, the Enervee Score® enables consumers to instantly see and understand the model-specific energy performances for any possible purchase. The Enervee Score® is also reviewed and refreshed daily - for every category on the IDEAL Marketplace. This means all product launches are shown within 24 hours, and no decision is ever made on old data.

The Enervee Score® provides market transparency when it comes to product energy usage. And from September 2018, we’ve updated the methodology to calculate the Enervee Score® to make it even easier - and clearer - for consumers to choose the most efficient models. Using the full range of the 0-100 scale, the Enervee Score® maps every product with their specific score. All but the best 10% of products score between 0 and 90 on the Enervee Score® scale, with specific bands for easy recognition: Low (0-50), Average (50-75) and Good (75-90). For the top 10% of products in each category, we reserve the Enervee Score® range of 90-100. These top-performing products will always score 90-100 (IDEAL), making it easier still to always pick the ideal products and appliances for your home.

Enervee follows the appropriate and accepted standards on performance and energy efficiency ratings in each territory where the IDEAL Customer Platform is used. For categories that are not yet regulated by standards (e.g. video game consoles), Enervee collaborates with stakeholders to develop and agree its own energy efficiency rating methodologies.
