This presentation was delivered by Ian McNicol at the Non-Domestic Fans Stakeholder Consultation Workshop held in Melbourne on 6 June 2012.

This discussion paper investigates options for governments to drive improvements to energy efficiency of new Small Fan Units (power input less than 125 Watts) sold into the Australian and New Zealand markets, including the possibility of implementing mandatory minimum energy performance standards (MEPS). This discussion paper covers stand-alone fans and small fans integrated into other appliances and equipment.Significant additional data is required for a more robust analysis of the policy options to be undertaken, and readers are asked to supply this where they have it.

Product Profile on Non-Domestic Fans (New Zealand version) Summary This report provides a Product Profile for non-domestic fans used in industrial, commercial and water supply applications in New Zealand and explores possible options available to improve the energy efficiency of the new fans which are sold.

Product Profile on Non-Domestic Fans (Australian version)SummaryThis report provides a Product Profile for non-domestic fans used in industrial and commercial applications in Australia and explores options available to improve the energy efficiency of the new fans which are sold.

The national Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Program has existed in some form in Australia for 20 years with engagement by New Zealand agencies for the last 15 years.  For much of this time, the regulatory agencies managing the Program have undertaken verification testing to check if suppliers are complying with mandatory standards.This document is in PDF format, for a Word version click here.The manner in which equipment is chosen for verification testing is the subject of this report.  The selection criteria (as well as the verification test processes) have evolved over time but with t

The development of sound energy policy relies on an understanding of energy consumption. Without knowledge of how and why energy is used at an end use level, the development of energy saving programs can only be based on educated guesswork. This paper is one in a series of papers on end use metering methodologies, prepared to assist in the development of end use metering campaigns. The purpose of this paper is to explain some of the practical issues in undertaking end use metering measurements of appliances and equipment in households.

This paper contains general information and recommendations that are applicable to the end-use metering of general plug loads.

This paper outlines the requirements of a data management plan for use in end-use metering campaigns.  It includes the specifications for data retrieval and database implementation. The main topics covered in this document are:Introduction information on the REMP end-use metering project.Background information on:Household-level data collection;Common terminology and protocols;Lessons learnt from the pilot project.Requirements relating to:Database design specifications;Data retrieval and pre-processing;Required database processed outputs;Database administration.
