Energy Standards & Labeling Scheme
The foundation for ES&L was set through Project BRESL (Barrier Removal to the cost-effective development and implementation of Energy efficiency Standards and Labeling) which was a regional project funded by GEF, implemented by UNDP with ENERCON being Responsible Party/ Implementing Agent.Its implementation in Pakistan commenced in January 2010 and completed in December 2014.
Project aimed for the reduction in annual growth rate of greenhouse gas (GHG) from thermal power generation. The project targeted at rapidly accelerating the adoption of Energy Standards and Labels (ES&L) in Asia, and in doing so bring about energy savings through the use of energy efficient appliances/equipment. The project also facilitated harmonization of test procedures, energy efficiency standards and labels among developing countries in Asia.
Project included six areas of intervention, i.e., electric fans, motors, compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), ballasts, refrigerators and air-conditioners. It included regional harmonization between six member countries, namely Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Thailand and Vietnam. In this regard, Pakistan was nominated as lead country for electric fans.Energy efficiency standards and labeling regime is expected to reduce the significant energy consumption in residential and commercial sectors in Pakistan.MOUs have been signed with PCSIR and PSQCA to ensure effective implementation of the Energy Standards & Labeling Scheme.
JICA is assisting in developing Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) for additional three items,updating the MEPS and exploring other areas of collaboration like capacity buidling,strengthening laboratories & developing phaseout roadmap.
