ASEAN Energy Standards and Labeling Program (2004 - 2005)
The objective of this project assignment is to assist the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Sub-sector Network (EE&C-SSN), the implementing body coordinated by the ASEAN Center for Energy (ACE). This came after the ASEAN Sub-Sector Network on Energy Efficiency & Conservation (EE&C-SSN) has received a mandate from the ASEAN Energy Ministers to proceed with and implement a regional energy certification labelling programme for high-efficiency equipment. The focus is on magnetic ballasts labels, followed by refrigerators and air conditioners and this project aimed at supporting EE&C-SSN in the design and implementation of S&L programs for ballasts in ASEAN.
Service Provided: 1) Establishment of a regional and corresponding national working groups for the ASEAN ballast energy labeling and the ASEAN S&L Network; 2) Conduct an appraisal of the ASEAN Ballast Market; 3) Develop an ASEAN energy performance testing procedure for Ballast; 4) Organization of a study tour for ASEAN and APEC representatives to Australia to learn about establishment and implementation of ballast MEPS in Australia; and 5) Coordination of round-robin testing for fluorescent lamp ballasts in 6 testing laboratories in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and China.
