New Resource for Energy Efficient Laboratory Equipment

The Energy-Efficient Laboratory Equipment Wiki, a tool created by the Laboratories for the 21st Century program and now available on I2SL, includes energy data and best practice information on dozens of types of laboratory equipment. The wiki provides:
 • Purchasing information so the most efficient equipment can be selected
 • Tips for researchers on how to use existing equipment most efficiently
• Realistic estimates of power consumption for different types of equipment
Laboratory equipment users are invited to peruse the wiki to determine the energy efficiency of existing equipment or consider equipment efficiency before purchasing new equipment. Read more »
