Achievements of appliance energy efficiency standards and labelling programs - a global assessment

Overview A new report developed in collaboration with the SEAD Initiative, the International Energy Agency (IEA) Implementing Agreement on Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment (4E) outlines the historic achievements of energy efficiency standards and labeling programs.
This report summarizes the recorded achievements of government energy efficiency standards and labeling (EESL) programs, which are among the longest running and most widely adopted type of national energy efficiency program.

Currently operating in more than 80 countries around the world, covering more than 50 different types of appliances and equipment in the commercial, industrial, and residential sectors, these types of programs provide the cornerstone of most national energy efficiency and climate change mitigation programs.

Read what impact they have made in saving energy, greenhouse gas emissions, and on the price of appliances.

The report can also be found in the IEA-4E publications website.
