Appliance Energy Testing and Labeling - Sri Lanka (2001 - 2002)
IIEC collaborated with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to undertake a feasibility study for appliance testing and labeling in Sri Lanka. The present value costs of test facility, labeling and standards for 4 appliances (refrigerators, televisions, lighting, and fans) would amount to US $ 3.9 million (Rs 0.273 billion). The consumer benefits (present value) in the form of electricity savings are estimated to be US $ 94 million (Rs 6.6 billion) while the avoided capacity costs (present value) are projected to reach US $ 58.6 million (Rs 4.1 billion).
Service Provided: 1) Cost-benefit analysis of appliance testing and labelling; 2) Market study on refrigerators, televisions, lighting, and fans; 3) Preparation of operational plan for the testing laboratory; and 4) Training on testing procedures.
