Energy rating and energy star labelling

Energy Ratings and labelling requirements

Energy ratings are an important tool for comparing the energy efficiency of appliances. As a supplier of an electrical appliance, you can use the rating to allow your customers to compare your products with your competitor's.

Energy ratings set out Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and labelling requirements for common appliances, to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

To help your customers make an informed choice, it is mandatory that an Energy Rating Label be attached to these products at point of sale:

  • refrigerators
  • freezers
  • clothes washers
  • clothes dryers
  • dishwashers
  • air-conditioners.

Energy stars

A vast amount of energy is consumed world-wide by electronic products in their standby modes. To address this problem, the energy star standard was developed.

Energy star is a voluntary international standard for electronic equipment that has an energy-efficient standby function enabled. By selling or using products compliant with the energy star standard, you can help the environment and your customers by reducing the amount of energy needed.
