Project Description and Summary of Services






The project aimed to design and implement a mandatory energy labelling scheme and minimum energy performance standards for residential appliances in Fiji starting with refrigerators and freezers and expanding to other appliances. The project also identified and prioritised the training needs of local institutions, agencies, authorities and private sector organisations to implement the mandatory standards and labelling programme. Lessons learnt from the programme in Fiji served as a foundation to the implementation of a regional standards and labelling programme in the Pacific Island Countries.

    - Work closely with the Fiji Department of Energy and steering committee in finalising a list of activities and determining feasible milestones for the implementation of the first appliance in Fiji.
  • Seek endorsement on the action plan from the Government of Fiji.
