Efficiency is defined as η = |Q|/|W| in order to investigate the electrical work |W| associated with electrocaloric heat |Q|. This materials parameter indicates that polymer films are slightly more energy efficient than ceramic films, and therefore both species of material remain candidates for future cooling applications.
