The Commonwealth, on behalf of the Equipment Energy Efficient (E3) Program, requested views from stakeholders and interested parties on a discussion paper outlining the proposed method for evaluating the performance of hot water systems. This can be used as the basis to support E3 program and a trans-Tasman water heater database as part of the E3 Hot Water Project. The consultation closed on 1 March 2021.
The Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, on behalf of the Committee overseeing the Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) Program, together with the Industrial Equipment Technical Working Group (TWG), have developed papers to provide a technical understanding of industrial pumps, compressors and boilers. These papers also investigate how the E3 Program could be expanded to include these products in Australia and New Zealand.
