Consultation RIS: Proposal to Introduce a Minimum Energy Performance Standard for Gas Water Heaters

Category: Water Heating

Date: 01/08/2008

This consultation regulatory impact statement (2008/07) was prepared by Syneca Consulting and released in August 2008.  It proposes the introduction of common minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) in Australia and New Zealand for gas water heaters (GWH).

An initial Cost-Benefit Analysis (CBA) of the proposal was released in June 2007. It was prepared by the Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee (E3 Committee) under the Ministerial Council on Energy (MCE) of the Australian federal, state and territory governments and the New Zealand Government. Stakeholder submissions called for changes to that proposal. This RIS, taking account of those stakeholder submissions provides an assessment of the revised proposal.
