How minimum energy performance standards can help reduce the electricity consumption in your country

Choose your country, type of appliance and enter the minimum energy performance standard (MEPS) that you would like to introduce. The result will show how the electricity use for the selected type of appliance will go down in the future. The graph compares the reduction scenario to the business-as-usual scenario which assumes that the current average EER will remain the same.


Minimum energy performance standard

MEPS will cut out units with lower efficiency. MEPS should be at least 2/3 of the current EER in order to achieve a reduction of electricity use. 

Current average EER:
