The SA Government, on behalf of the Equipment Energy Efficient (E3) Program, sought feedback from stakeholders and interested parties on a Consultation Paper (August 2019) on mandating certain electrical appliances to be demand response capable, for both Australia and New Zealand.
This report presents the results of the market surveillance of models of the seven products regulated under the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012 that are required to display an Energy Rating Label (ERL) on the product when supplied in store. The report covers the period between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019.
The Australian Government has released the Final Report of the Independent Review of the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards Act 2012 (GEMS Act).
The review is a statutory requirement to ensure the GEMS Act remains appropriate and effective in reducing Australia’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Ms Anna Collyer, a partner at law firm Allens, was appointed to undertake the review.
