German term or phrase: energetischer Gesamtjahreswirkungsgrad
Hello again,

More from the green energy text:

"Anlagen muessen einen energetischen Gesamtjahreswirkungsgrad von mindestens 70% aufweisen."

I've found "annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE)" but I am not 100% sure that this is the same thing. Could anyone confirm this for me?

Thanks very much!

energetische Gesamtjahreswirkungsgrad
annual overall energetic efficiency

I've come across "energetische Gesamtwirkungsgrad" (= "overall energetic efficiency") before, but the "Jahres" bit is new to me, hence the CL of 3.

"annual Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER)" gets some googles

I've confirmed "effeciency ratio" in several tech. dictionaries

"yearly thermal efficiency" is measured in percent??

Asker: Hello Jonathan, Doing some research, I've found that the EER is usually measured in watts. This (whatever it is) is measured in %. I'm not sure they are the same figure - what do you think?
