Energy Efficiency Description:

Chile established their energy labelling programme in 2005 and today it is one of the most comprehensive mandatory comparative energy labelling programmes in the world, covering 38 appliances and equipment and of which 26 are mandatory.

The programme coverage has risen remarkably since 2010 when only 5 appliances and equipment were covered. The label format is based on the European Union energy label, with A being the most efficient and G being the least efficient. For lighting, domestic refrigerators and three-phase induction motors, the G rating is indexed to the respective minimum energy performance standards.
