Description:

The Energy-Efficient Household Appliance Promotion Forum was established with the aim of further promoting the widespread use of energy-efficient household appliances (e.g. air conditioners, refrigerators, lighting) as a national movement through collaboration with concerned parties, including household appliance manufacturers/retailers and consumer groups. Driven by its members, the forum is engaged in the rollout of campaigns to promote energy-efficient household appliances, the wider provision of information on such appliances, the development of domestic energy saving diagnosis tools, and the co-hosting of the "Energy Saving Contest".

After five years had passed when the forum was established in June 2013, the forum was re-organized and re-named to Smart-life Japan Promotional Forum. The main aim of this new forum is to achieve the smart energy use life-style in household by combining such concepts as “creative use of energy”, “storing energy, and “energy conservation” through dissemination and PR activities.
