Strengthen international co-ordination and long-term strategic goals
Governments need to work together and with key stakeholders to ensure that markets around the world send effective signals to consumers and manufacturers to maximise efficiency while limiting the cost of future changes. Establishing common international targets for applying MEPS can help market participants plan and deliver cost-effective, highly efficient appliances.
Better co-ordination can be realised through engagement with bodies such as the Energy Efficiency Hub. The Hub was launched in 2019 and is a voluntary collaboration among 16 governments seeking to strengthen their effectiveness in deploying energy efficiency, including appliances.
