The emphasis in the current policy setting is on greenhouse gas reduction and assisting households to transition to a low-carbon future. Energy efficiency measures are a key element of the Government’s approach, in addition to an emissions trading scheme and the renewable energy target. The Energy labelling and Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) under the Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) program seek to address problems relating to lack of information on the energy performance of appliances and equipment and incentives that may result in poor energy efficiency choices.
This is a Decision Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) which examines the impacts arising from a proposal to change the star rating algorithm for the energy labelling system and update the MEPS levels for air conditioners. It also proposes a number of new requirements as part of the regulatory scheme for these products.
This report (April 2005) examines the potential to apply minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) to halogen transformers, in order to accelerate the transition to low loss units and to eliminate inefficient models.
This paper examines whether Australian Governments should proceed with the use of MEPS and/or an endorsement label for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in the Australian market, and if so, what criteria this label should be based upon.
In this report, a number of overseas endorsement programs for CFLs are examined and their scope and requirements are compared.
