High energy accelerators are usually great energy consumers and could not escape from being concerned by energy efficiency aspects. After recalling the context, major actions towards energy efficiency will be presented, with plans for the future.

Magnet energy recovery on a cycle-by-cycle basis shows potential for great energy savings and improvement of the grid power quality. Reducing the magnet duty cycle allows more compact mechanical layout and greater efficiency. To achieve such a benefit a system integration study is essential before starting the parallel development of magnets and power conversion/energy recovery systems.

An accelerator magnet is usually excited either by water cooled copper coils powered with an effective current density in the range of 3-6 A/mm2 or by using superconducting coils, depending on the required field amplitude. Exceptions are often due to technical reasons (special constraints, easier construction, more reliability). Up to now, only in rare cases (in particular in experimental...
