This Regulatory Impact Statement was prepared with the assistance of Syneca Consulting and Beletich Associates. This Committee reports to the Ministerial Council on Energy, comprising the energy ministers of the Australian federal, state and territory governments, and of the New Zealand government.
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.
