Efficient Air Conditioners / ASEAN SHINE

Promotion and deployment of energy efficient air conditioners in ASEAN

Energy efficient air conditioners in ASEAN map

In ASEAN countries, inefficient air conditioners (ACs) have contributed to environmental problems due to inefficient electricity consumption as well as high GHG emissions. Addressing this challenge might be difficult since there is still non-tariff barriers to trade that need to be removed to enhance regional market integration for higher efficiency ACs and there is not yet any harmonized energy efficiency (EE) standards for higher efficiency ACs in the region.

The Objectives: The project aims at increasing the market share of higher efficient ACs in ASEAN through harmonisation of test methods and energy efficiency (EE) standards, adoption of common Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS), and changing consumer purchasing attitudes in favor of energy efficient ACs.

The way forward:

  • Establishment of the EU-ASEAN Energy Efficiency Standards Harmonization Initiative,
  • Harmonization of standards for testing methods,
  • Development of harmonized energy performance standards for ASEAN countries and adoption of a regional policy roadmap,
  • Putting national policies in place to enforce the standards (MEPS), mobilize AC manufacturers in support of the national policy, create awareness among end-users (households), create an enabling environment for conformity assessment and market compliance,and have a time-bound plan for the progressive increase of MEPS over time
  • Providing capacity building for testing laboratories and AC manufacturers,
  • Engaging consumer via awareness campaign.

 

Duration: 1/2013 - 12/2016
