EEDAL 2013: Evidence of Progress - Measurement of Impacts of Australia’s S&L Program from 1990-2010

Australia represents a potentially fruitful case study for understanding the dynamics energy efficiency standards and labeling (EES&L) programs impacts on appliance markets. This analysis attempts to distinguish between the impacts of labeling alone as opposed to MEPS, and to probe the time-dependency of such impacts.
