This Decision Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) has been prepared to communicate the potential costs and benefits arising from the proposed phase-out of greenhouse gas intensive hot water heaters from existing Australian houses (Class 1 dwellings: defined in the Building Code of Australia as detached, row, terrace or town houses, but not including apartments).

Several states and territories now have regulations regarding the types of water heaters that can be installed in homes, which generally promote the installation of low greenhouse gas emission water heaters. As a result of these regulations and the availability of government incentives, the number of heat pump water heaters being installed is expected to increase.

Air conditioners fall into three broad categories single unit systems, packaged air conditioners (PACs) and larger commercial and industrial cooling towers. Single unit systems are purchased and used in small commercial buildings and dwellings.

Packaged airconditioners (PACs) the main focus of this regulatory statement provide heating, cooling and airconditioning residential (HVAC) in small to medium commercial and institutional buildings, and in larger residential dwellings. Larger air cooling towers are used in medium to larger commercial and industrial buildings.

This Supplementary Discussion Paper was prepared by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency as part of the National Strategy on Energy Efficiency (NSEE). The Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency (DCCEE) has released this Supplementary Discussion Paper to canvass a range of design features of the proposed national legislation for Minimum Energy Performance  Standards (MEPS) and energy labelling for equipment and appliances.

The emphasis in the current policy setting is on greenhouse gas reduction and assisting households to transition to a lowcarbon 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 Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) examines regulatory options for air conditioners in Australia. The closing date for submissions was the 6th of August 2010.
