TH E N A TIONAL APPLIANCE AND EQUIPMENT ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAM
The National Appliance and Equipment Energy Efficiency Program (NAEEEP) is a collection of coordinated end-use energy efficiency programs that deliver economic and environmental benefits to the community. It focuses on programs that require a nationally consistent framework to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions from household appliances and equipment, and commercial and industrial equipment. The main tools used to achieve these outcomes are mandatory minimum energy performance standards, energy efficiency labelling enforced by law and voluntary measures including endorsement labelling, training and support to promote the best available products.
C OST EF F EC TIVE AB ATEM EN T
Australian governments have agreed that the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment must improve at rates well beyond what the market has traditionally delivered. NAEEEP, a market intervention program consisting of a combination of minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and mandatory energy efficiency (star rating) labelling, has proved extremely cost-effective in reducing energy demand and greenhouse gas emissions produced by consumer appliances and commercial and industrial equipment. Just how effective this approach has been can be seen from a comparion of recent studies estimating the impact of the program. In 2000, independent technical experts estimated that the cumulative greenhouse abatement to be achieved by NAEEEP over the next 15 years would be about 82 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (mtCO2e) below business-as-usual. In 2002, the same experts projected that the expanded program would deliver greenhouse abatement of 134 mtCO2e below business-as-usual. According to the most recent estimates (January 2005), NAEEEP is projected to save almost 204 mtCO2e below business-as-usual between 2005 and 2020. Not only is the level of greenhouse gas emissions being saved by NAEEEP significant, the fact that these savings are being achieved at a net present value of minus $23/tonne of CO2e, is equally impressive. In other words, over time consumers actually save money by buying the more efficient products mandated under the program. Independent experts have advised that the additional up-front cost to consumers purchasing these more efficient products will usually be recouped within, on average, one or two years as these products are cheaper to run. The program will save consumers about $4.8 billion by 2020 as a result of reduced energy costs in using these products. The fact that NAEEEP benefits the community both environmentally and economically and has been recognised by the Ministerial Council on Energy.
THE NATIONAL APPLIANCE AND EQUIPMENT ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMMITTEE
The National Appliance and Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee (NAEEEC), which oversees the implementation of the NAEEEP, consists of officials from Commonwealth, State and Territory government agencies as well as representatives of the New Zealand government. The committee reports to other government committees and is ultimately responsible to the Ministerial Council on Energy comprising ministers responsible for energy from all jurisdictions. The NAEEEC charter provides the terms of reference for the committee and is available at www.energyrating.gov.au under NAEEEC. The member organisations of the committee are listed at the front of this report.
A CHANGING WORLD
In December 2004, the Ministerial Council on Energy agreed to implement stage one of the National Framework on Energy Efficiency (NFEE). An expanded NAEEEP is an important component of the National Framework which aims to address the challenges relating to energy efficiency and unlock the significant potential economic, social and environmental benefits of increased investment in this area. One of the key initiatives of both NFEE and NAEEEP is government investment in developing and implementing long-term strategies for various sectors. These strategies have been welcomed by industry as they clearly indicate the governments forward regulatory agenda, increase market certainty and assist industry in its business planning processes. The 10-year standby power strategy, Money isnt all youre saving, has been joined by two new long-term strategies published in December 2004: Greenlight Australia, and Switch on Gas.
N AEEEC M EM B ER S AR E AL SO STAK EHO L DER S IN THE PROGRAM
Each year, NAEEEC acknowledges the crucial contribution of stakeholders in helping to drive improvements in the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment sold in Australia and New Zealand. While it is not possible to recognise all those who participate in and assist the program, NAEEEC identifies those whose special role or service has been instrumental in achieving energy efficiency improvements and greenhouse abatement. Past individuals singled out for special mention have included industry leaders, Standards Australia staff, technical experts from testing facilities and energy efficiency consultants. This year NAEEEC would like to recognise the contribution of several retiring members of the committee: Dr Tony Marker has chaired NAEEEC since its expansion in 1998 and has been the catalyst for extending the program beyond an appliance labelling scheme. He has been the public face of the program for almost seven years, championing end-use energy efficiency issues. Alan Faulks, Ian George and Brian King from the Queensland, Western Australian and South Australian regulatory agencies have given even longer service in this field, participating on Standards Australia committees and advising the Ministerial Council on Energy on all aspects of the committees work.
Together these strategies are expected to save the economy more than half a billion dollars and seven million tonnes of greenhouse emissions in 2015.
PROG RAM BREAK - DOWN
The expanded work program NAEEEP approved by Ministerial Committee on Energy covers the household, commercial and industrial sectors. The new work program for 2005/06 to 2007/08 is projected to impact across a range of end-use product groups: household appliances (25% of projected savings) standby power (24%) lighting (12%) electricity distribution transformers (10%) air conditioners (9%) commercial refrigeration (8%) water heaters (7%), and electric motors (5%).
NAEEEC will continue the work that these government officials started in the 1990s, under the expanded mandate of the Ministerial Council on Energy. The new and remaining members of NAEEEC would like to express their appreciation for the contribution made by these and numerous other colleagues who have served on the committee.
The year was consumed by refreshing and expanding the Ministerial Council on Energy mandate for the program while also delivering on agreed product regulation. Since the 1998 National Greenhouse Strategy, the Ministerial Council on Energy and other councils that preceded it have called for an expanded program. This year marks the culmination of this vision, with the Ministerial Council on Energy taking key policy decisions as part of the National Framework on Energy that will allow for expansion of the program in all areas including the: range of products to be regulated types of products (for example, the program will be expanded to include gas appliances for the first time), and range of policy tools (for example, long-term strategic plans). to be released at the NAEEEC Autumn Forum in 2005. This three-year work plan has moved to cover financial years to better reflect funding cycles and priorities. The agreement to completely harmonise regulatory plans in both Australia and New Zealand has a number of benefits for all stakeholders. Suppliers will have to meet the same regulatory standards in both countries allowing economies of scale in local production and easier compliance requirements. Consumers will not be confused by differing regulatory and labelling arrangements, and energy efficiency regulators can concentrate on delivering common regulatory proposals rather than being distracted by justifying differing standards for products sold in both countries. The agreement to a common end-use energy efficiency work program is in line with the closer economic relations doctrine adopted by both countries. The New Zealand Government has signalled it will consider sharing costs with the Australian program in future. For the last two financial years, the New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority has contributed to verification testing costs to both expand and share results from the work of Australian jurisdictions.
I M PLEM ENTING THE STANDBY POWER STRATEG Y A YE AR OF CONSOLIDATION
Many modern appliances consume power all day, every day, even when theyre not in use. This standby power can make a substantial contribution to an appliances overall energy consumption and is often required to maintain a convenient ready state for instant, on demand use. However, in some cases, standby power serves no useful function or operates at excessive levels. The figures on the following page show results from in-store surveys carried out by NAEEEC since 2001. Figure 1 shows the distribution of passive standby mode, for all products, while figure 2 shows the distribution of off mode for all products. The trends are heading in the right direction, however there is still much work to be done. In November 2002, the Ministerial Council on Energy released Australias Standby Strategy 20022012 Money Isnt All Youre Saving. During 2004, the key activities undertaken to implement this strategy were: Maintaining strong engagement with other economies, particularly the US, Europe and Korea. Australia recognises that international cooperation is paramount to the success of standby power reduction. Another 16 product-specific plans to address excessive standby power were published and distributed to stakeholders for
comment see appendix 2. Stakeholders called for the regulation of standby power for all home entertainment equipment. Work has since commenced on implementing MEPS for digital set-top boxes and external power supplies (from 2006), with other products to begin from 2007. Work commenced on delivering www.energyallstars.gov.au, the high efficiency database where standby power performance will be an important criteria for qualifying products, in particular, office equipment. The Ministerial Council on Energy requested the development of the database as the basis of a government energy efficiency purchasing policy, and the site is available now. The first study into the standby power of commercial premises was undertaken and results will be available in mid 2005. The 2004 standby power in-store survey was undertaken to track trends in the consumption of a range of product types. Nearly 650 appliances were tested, bringing the total to more than 2,500 appliances during the past four years.
TESAW F O R 0 5
The Top Energy Saver Award Winner (TESAW) is a government award that recognises the most efficient products on the market. It applies to both electric and gas products that carry a star rating energy label and is designed to help consumers quickly identify the most efficient products on the market. The initiative began in late 2003 and 2004 was the first full year of operation. Each year, government reviews the energy efficiency of all products on the market and in consultation with industry, sets minimum energy efficiency criteria (usually a minimum star rating) for TESAW for the coming year. From the start of the award period in November, manufacturers of existing or new products that meet the criteria can apply. Once an award is granted, the manufacturer may promote the TESAW label on the winning product and in promotional material. The products are also listed on the Energy Rating website. Criteria for 2005 TESAW awards were announced in October 2004. For the first time, the initiative includes electric storage water heaters with low heat loss. A list of TESAW star rated appliances at February 2005 is included in appendix 5. More information is also available at www.energyrating.gov.au under energy programs.
One of the most exciting initiatives for 2004 was the development of Energy Allstars database (www.energyallstars.gov.au) a new resource for all Australian governments, large corporate purchasers and the public. The site lists only the most energy efficient appliances and equipment currently on the market and is designed to encourage suppliers to market efficient products. The website was trialled in late 2004 and will be launched in 2005. The Ministerial Council on Energy has endorsed the idea that all future government procurement should use the website to identify and source product needs. For each product type, a set of performance criteria will be established each year for eligible models together with a process for listing efficient products. New product categories will be added progressively.
A D M I N I STRATIV E G U IDELINES
The national energy efficiency legislative scheme is underpinned by state and territory legislation. The use of nationally endorsed model regulations allows jurisdictions to create a nationally consistent scheme. The scheme operates through a set of mutual expectations. Industry expects that regulatory agencies will act in a nationally consistent and cooperative way and will embrace the Standards Australia processes in setting and publishing the technical requirements. Regulatory agencies expect that industry will participate constructively to ensure that technical requirements are fair and equitable for all participants. The administrative guidelines play a crucial role in demonstrating compliance with these expectations. They help state and territory regulatory agencies work in a consistent manner so that costs and inconvenience to industry are minimised and regulations concerning energy efficiency labelling and performance standards are enforced efficiently. It provides an explanation to industry about the: way state and territory legislation operates and is administered by state and territory regulatory agencies standard procedures, rules and processes that are intended to underpin state and territory legislation responsibilities of relevant state and territory regulatory agencies, and responsibilities of industry.
The guidelines have operated since 1 April 2000, and to ensure they are relevant, were reviewed during 2004. This latest version appears at www.energyrating.gov.au under NAEEEC.
REGULATORY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
MEPS have a dramatic impact on the energy efficiency of household appliances and industrial and commercial equipment. These improvements are the cornerstone of the program and represent government intervention in the market to drive efficiency improvements faster than if the marketplace was left to its own devices. NAEEEC is required to meet the requirements for national regulation making by complying with regulatory processes in both Australia and New Zealand. To keep up with the pace and quantum of these improvements, NAEEEP regularly releases detailed plans about its targeted products. During 2004, regulatory impact statements were released for public comment on proposals to introduce MEPS for commercial refrigeration and miscellaneous electric storage water heaters (vented and heat exchange types). A number of other products also had their regulatory impact processes finalised in 2004. Details are reported below.
The RIS was released in February 2004.
Australian Government agencies proposed to introduce mandatory MEPS for commercial refrigeration in October 2004. This forms part of the Governmentss strategy for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and follows the successful implementation of regulatory efficiency standards for other products. Analysis of the commercial refrigeration market and discussions with Australian industry suggest that voluntary mechanisms would not provide the necessary conditions for investment in energy efficiency. By applying to all products sold in Australia, MEPS maintains a level playing field for all product suppliers, and provides the necessary security for the development of more efficient refrigerated cabinets. The MEPS levels are based on the levels set out in Australian Standard 1731.142003 Refrigerated Display Cabinets Part 14: Minimum Energy Performance Standard requirements.
BENEFITS AND COSTS:
NAEEEP estimates the cost effectiveness of its activities is minus $28/tonne CO2e (in other words a gain of $28 per tonne CO2e) (NAEEEP 2003). It is estimated that mandatory MEPS will result in total cumulative greenhouse gas abatement of between 1.5 and 2.4 mtCO2e abatement from 2005 to 2020 inclusive. Experience has shown the substantial benefits that minimum energy performance standards bring by eliminating the worst performing products from the market.
MEPS for Commercial Refrigeration became effective as of 1 October 2004.
SMALL MAINS PRESSURE ELECTRIC STORAG E WATER HEATERS
The first RIS was released in June 2001 but this was rejected by MCE. A revised RIS was released in August 2003.
M ISC EL L AN EO US EL EC TR IC STO R AG E W ATER HEATER S
The RIS was released in June 2004.
The proposal would bring the MEPS arrangements for miscellaneous water heaters into line with the arrangements currently applying to the rest of the market for electric water heaters, comprising mains pressure units. The various types of electric heater would be treated uniformly thereafter, there being no significant technical differences in respect of heat losses and measures to reduce them. The proposed measures will replace the current recommended or voluntary MEPS with mandatory MEPS, and reduce the maximum permitted heat loss by 30%. This will require the replacement of models that account for at least 90% of existing sales. Some manufactures have already introduced more efficient models that comply with the proposed standard or will do so after further relatively minor adjustment.
It was found that increasing the stringency of the 1999 MEPS levels by mandatory means is the only option likely to be effective on its own in achieving objectives stated for the regulation: reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and reduced life cycle costs to users. The proposal was to increase the stringency of the existing MEPS levels for small electric water heaters (delivery less than 80 litres). This would be put into effect by revising the maximum standing heat loss values in Clause 2.4 of Australian Standard AS 1056.1-1991 Storage water heaters Part 1: General Requirements. This is the same mechanism as was used to implement the 1999 water heater MEPS levels. Existing State and Territory energy labelling and MEPS regulations enforce compliance with this clause.
The major economic benefit of more stringent MEPS is the value of the electricity saved. The major economic cost is the increase in the average cost of water heaters, and the possible costs of accommodating larger water heaters. A reduction in electricity consumption would also produce environmental benefits in the form of lower greenhouse gas emissions. The economic costs and benefits are likely to be passed on to the household and business users of electric storage water heaters, but there will also be impacts on the manufacturers, importers and exporters of water heaters.
The aggregate benefits and costs are $19.4 million and $9.3 million, yielding a net present value of $10.1 million. A reduction in electricity consumption would also produce environmental benefits in the form of lower greenhouse gas emissions. The economic costs and benefits are likely to be passed on to the household and business users of electric storage water heaters, but there will also be impacts on the manufacturers, importers and exporters of water heaters.
The MEPS for miscellaneous electric storage water heaters are to come into effect as of 1 October 2005.
The MEPS for small mains pressure electric storage water heaters will come into effect as of 1 October 2005.
LI N EA R FLU ORESCENT LAMP S
The RIS was released in December 2003
EL EC TR IC M O TOR S
The RIS was released in December 2003.
Australian Government agencies proposed to introduce mandatory MEPS for linear fluorescent lamps. Due to the fact that the efficacy of halophosphate lamps is largely unchangeable, mandatory MEPS for linear fluorescent lamps would result in the phasing out of halophosphate lamps in favour of triphosphor. T12 halophosphate and T8 halophosphate lamps would be prohibited, leaving only T5 triphosphor lamps. The proposed Australian regulation would cover products from a length of 550mm to 1500mm inclusive. The joint Australian and New Zealand Standard proposed to specify both initial and maintained minimum average lamp efficacy figures. The maintained efficacy is defined at lamp life of 5000 hrs. The initial efficacy level will be used for testing purposes. Check tests will not be based on maintained efficacy levels, as it is considered impractical to test lamps for 5000+ hours prior to taking enforcement action.
This is a regulatory impact statement for proposed changes to minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for motors falling within the scope of the joint Australian New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1359.5. These are three-phase induction motors with output ratings from 0.73 kW up to but not including 185 kWh. They are used in a wide range of applications, including airconditioning and ventilation systems, pumps, mechanical drives and compressors. The proposed measures will require about 70% of existing models to be withdrawn from the market. Motor losses will need to be reduced by 10-20% for most motors that are borderline compliant with the existing 2001 MEPS, with larger reductions for some smaller motors.
It is expected that the proposed MEPS will deliver substantial economic benefits over the life of the regulation, which is taken to be the 6-year period after implementation. The net benefits and the benefit/cost ratio are assessed at $120M and 2.5 respectively. The total savings of electricity and greenhouse gas are about 8,900 GWh and 7.7 MTCO2-e respectively.
it is estimated that mandatory MEPS will result in cumulative greenhouse gas abatement of between 0.5 and 3.1 million tonnes CO2e over the period 2005 2020. users with longer lamp operating hours (business users) will derive greater benefits from a particular MEP level.
EFFECTIVE DATE: EFFECTIVE DATE:
The MEPS for linear fluorescent lamps came into effect as of 1 October 2004. The MEPS for electric motors will be effective as of April 2006.
The theme of improving the monitoring, compliance and enforcement of the program is a constant message. It was reiterated to stakeholders in the presentation Australian regulators approach to enforcing MEPS at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Air conditioning and energy performance the next five years conference held in June 2004. The conference was convened by the Australian Greenhouse Office with support and funding from APEC for testing methods, and key Australian stakeholder organisations for performance standards and peak load issues. At the March 2004 NAEEEC Forum, a presentation entitled Enforcement activities in Victoria was made to almost 100 participants representing industry, regulators, Commonwealth and state and territory government agencies, testing authorities, academia and consultants. NAEEEC understands the investment energy efficiency regulation imposes on stakeholders. It will continue to vigorously pursue compliance using a variety of strategies. consultant) continued to manage the 2004 Checktest program which included laboratory validity testing, round robin testing, equipment check testing and standards development for water heaters, commercial refrigerators, lighting ballasts, single phase and three phase air conditioners, clothes washers and dryers.
a new laboratory in Victoria is now testing electric water heaters.
IN F R IN G EM EN T N OTIC ES
State regulators have been either piloting infringement notice powers in their jurisdictions, or have already issued notices to electrical store retailers. Retailers can receive more than one infringement notice, each of which represents a fine of $500. In 2004, one major Victorian retailer was issued with an infringement notice.
COS T RE COVE RY
In October 2004, a proposal for a memorandum of understanding for energy efficiency standards was made between the Australian government (represented by the Australian Greenhouse Office on behalf of NAEEEC) and trade associations to reimburse costs for checktested products at NATA laboratories. The allocation in 2004 was $500,000 and much of this will be recoverable under the arrangement allowing more equipment and appliances to be tested.
COMPLIANCE MONITORING AND IN TER N ET SAL ES
In addition to retail store compliance, regulators have followed-up supply of unregistered and unlabelled equipment on internet auction sites such as eBay and obtained registration of these products. Notices to comply are sent to advertisers. NAEEEC is working with eBay to ensure that advertisers can only offer new proclaimed products that are registered for energy labelling or MEPS in Australia. In conjunction with the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating, the Victorian regulator wrote to all exhibitors at the 2004 Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services exhibition in Melbourne to advise of the regulatory requirements and conducted compliance audits of 14 suppliers. An audit of 10 suppliers at the 2004 RACV Home Show was also conducted.
PURCHASE OF TEST REPOR TS
For 2004, NAEEEP purchased seven test reports from the Australian Consumers Associations NATA accredited test research laboratory. NAEEEP purchases NATA test reports of failed units which is a cost effective way to increase the number of appliances covered by the program.
FUN D ING FROM NE W ZE AL AN D
The 2004 Checktest program was further expanded with funding from New Zealand. An agreement has been reached for 20% of the total agreed Australasian budget to be provided by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA). EECA will manage New Zealands contribution either through direct expenditure in relation to the agreed program or through contributions to the trust fund.
C HEC K TEST O UTC OM ES 0 4
During 2004, screen tests (stage 1 checktest) were conducted on units identified as at risk of failing MEPS or labelling standards by compliant, competitors or market intelligence. The following table summarises the tests undertaken:
NAEEEP operates with contributions from all Australian jurisdictions. Under the agreed funding formula, the Commonwealth provides 50% of the funding while states and territories provide the other 50%. In addition to agency staff resources, NAEEEC received funding from the Ministerial Council on Energy in 200304 of $1.45 million and in 200405 of $1.55 million. New Zealand also contributed $100,000 toward verification testing costs, increasing that budget item by 20%.

G R EEN L IGHT AUSTRALIA, NATIONAL LIGHTING STRATEGY 2005-2015
In December 2004 the Ministerial Council on Energy released Greenlight Australia, a long-term strategy to improve the energy efficiency of lighting products. Greenlight Australia is expected to save Australians well over half a billion dollars a year within a decade and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The strategy is part of the National Framework for Energy Efficiency, which aims to improve the uptake of energy efficiency opportunities. It is the result of consultations in both Australia and New Zealand. Lighting costs the Australian community well over $2 billion in electricity each year. Increasing the energy efficiency of lighting by 20% will save households and businesses more than $500 million a year in electricity costs by 2015. Lighting also generates about 25 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year and is responsible for about one-third of the greenhouse emissions from the commercial sector. Greenlight Australia will abate almost seven million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year by 2015, and make an important contribution to our national efforts to respond to climate change. Greenlight Australia is a dynamic strategy that will be implemented through a series of three-year rolling plans. The first of these work plans covers 200506 to 200708 and will include the following projects: Copies of the strategy are available at www.energyrating.gov.au

Recognising that significant benefits can be achieved through improvements in energy efficiency, the Ministerial Council on Energy endorsed the Switch on Gas 10-year strategy and agreed to its implementation in December 2004. Natural gas currently supplies about 30% of total household energy in Australia. Switch on Gas has the potential to reduce Australian consumers expenditure on natural gas by up to $115 million a year and consumption by more than 5% against business-as-usual, with an annual greenhouse gas saving of approximately 600kt. Gas appliances are currently labelled and MEPS levels set under an industry-run scheme administered by the Australian Gas Association. The gas scheme suffers from a number of significant limitations compared to the electrical appliance scheme: while labelling is mandatory, point-of-sale display of labels is not enforced, and changes in test methods and labelling apply only when new products are certified.

NAEEEC MEMBER ORGANISATIONS
The Commonwealth, New Zealand, and each state and territory are represented on NAEEEC and participate in its deliberations. Representatives are officials within government departments, agencies and statutory authorities or people appointed to represent those bodies. Representatives are usually a senior officer directly responsible for energy efficiency. The membership is currently under review and may expand to include other agencies working in these fields. The Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) is part of the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Heritage. The AGO is responsible for monitoring the National Greenhouse Strategy in cooperation with states and territories and with the input of local government, industry and the community. An AGO officer is the chair of NAEEEC and others provide support for its activities. The NSW Department of Energy, Utilities and Sustainability provides policy advice to the NSW Government and operates a regulatory framework aimed at facilitating environmentally responsible appliance and equipment energy use. The Office of the Chief Electrical Inspector is the Victorian technical regulator responsible for electrical safety and equipment efficiency. Its mission is to ensure the safety of electricity supply and use throughout the state and its corporate vision is to demonstrate national leadership in electrical safety matters and to improve the superior electrical safety record in Victoria. The offices strategic focus is to ensure a high level of compliance is sustained by industry with equipment efficiency labelling and associated regulations. The Sustainable Energy Authority was established in 2000 by the Victorian Government to provide a focus for sustainable energy in Victoria. The authoritys objective is to accelerate progress towards a sustainable energy future by bringing together the best available knowledge and expertise to stimulate innovation and provide Victorians with greater choice in how they can take action to significantly improve energy sustainability. The Electrical Safety Office, Department of Industrial Relations, is the Queensland technical regulator responsible for electrical safety and appliance and equipment energy efficiency. The office ensures compliance with electrical safety and efficiency regulations throughout Queensland. The Environmental Protection Agency, through its Sustainable Industries Division, is Queenslands lead agency in the promotion of energy efficiency, renewable power, and other initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the state. Its key aim is to achieve increased investment in sustainable energy systems, technology and practice. Energy Safety WA seeks to promote conditions that enable the Western Australian communitys energy needs to be met safely, efficiently and economically. The Western Australian Sustainable Energy Development Office promotes more efficient energy use and increased use of renewable energy to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase jobs in related industries.

COST EFFECTIVE OUTCOMES
The Ministerial Council on Energy has recognised the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme as being an extremely cost effective measure that delivers real benefits for the economy, the environment, and for Australian consumers across all sectors. Key outcomes expected for the period up until 2020 include:
> The programme delivers
E3 in the 21st Century
> With agreement for Stage 1 of the National Framework for Energy Efficiency and the
economic benefits to Australia - with a total estimated value of $4.8 billion by 2020 plus a benefit of $700 million for the New Zealand economy. environment benefits through significant greenhouse gas emission savings. In 2000, it was expected that the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme will generate greenhouse gas emission savings of 84 million tonnes in Australia over the next 15 years. By 2003, these projections were increased to 134 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emission savings below businessas-usual. Most recent estimates (January 2005) project that greenhouse gas emission savings of almost 204 million tonnes below business as usual between 2005-2020 will be achieved.
agreement of New Zealand to join NAEEEP - it was appropriate in 2005 to change the name of the programme to better reflect its expanded scope. NAEEEC and E2WG members considered a number of possible names before settling on Equipment Energy Efficiency programme. To assist public awareness of the programme and its role in delivering economic and environmental benefits through energy efficiency, communication consultants were asked to advise on an attractive brand for the entire programme. Subsequently the brand of E3 was proposed and is being further developed. Branding is an iterative process that will ultimately support widespread, low cost mainstream media exposure of the programme and heightened public awareness of the programme and its objectives, as compared to earlier acronyms used to identify the programme that were a disincentive to media exposure and thus an obstacle to public awareness. The tagline for E3 Programme has also been revised to more accurately reflect its role within the cooperative National Framework for Energy Efficiency and now reads: An Initiative of the Ministerial Council on Energy forming part of the Australian National Framework for Energy Efficiency and the New Zealand National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy
> The strategy is important
GREENLIGHT AUSTRALIA The lighting strategy
> Lighting is a $2 billion
in providing a coherent and comprehensive plan that allows industry some certainty in moving forward. One of the most important aspects of the strategy is the target of a 20% saving in annual lighting energy consumption by 2015, when compared to the business as usual case. This target was suggested by the Australian lighting industry and Australian governments have endorsed it as an achievable measure of the strategys effectiveness. > As a result of Greenlight Australia, it has been estimated that the electricity consumed by lighting products will be reduced by 7.8 Terawatt hours or by almost 7 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per annum from 2015. This will also save the economy over half a billion dollars in reduced electricity costs.
> During 2005 work on the
first of the Greenlight Australia projects commenced with the release of technical papers on: Compact fluorescent lamps; Extra low voltage halogen transformers and converters; Main roads lighting; Work on developing a training and education package and an appropriate compliance regime also commenced in 2005.
> Televisions. > Work commenced
on: delivering www. energyallstars.gov.au, the database of high efficiency products where standby power performance will be an important criterion for qualifying, in particular with office equipment. The Ministerial Council on Energy requested the development of the database as the part of a government energy efficiency purchasing policy. The site has been operational for some months.
industry that generates about 25 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year, or about 5% of national emissions. > In December 2004, the Ministerial Council on Energy released Greenlight Australia with the full support of the lighting industry. This is a 10 year strategy that sets out how Australia expects to improve the energy efficiency of lighting products by 2015 through a range of both regulatory and voluntary measures.
SWITCH ON GAS The gas strategy
The Switch on Gas strategy, released by the Ministerial Council on Energy in December 2004, is a blueprint jointly endorsed by government and industry outlining the actions to enhance energy efficiency for gas appliances and equipment from 2005 to 2015. The Equipment Energy Efficiency Gas committee is responsible for implementing the Switch on Gas strategy and for its overall management. The committee consists of officials and representatives from Commonwealth, State,
Territory and New Zealand government agencies with current membership listed at Appendix 7. The committee reports to the Ministerial Council on Energy via the Energy Efficiency Working Group. In 2005 the principal industry stakeholders (the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association of Australia, the Australian Gas Association, and the Gas Association of New Zealand) met with the committee to review the draft Work Plan for the 10 Year strategy. The products expected to be covered by this
programme in 2010 are listed in Table 4. It now appears that some jurisdictions must pass enabling legislation to allow for nationally consistent regulation of gas products. The development of an administrative legislative framework for the programme is being progressed, with a range of options being considered for further development in 2006.

ONLINE DATABASE FOR REGISTRATIONS
Through secure access to registration pages on the www. energyrating.gov.au website, product suppliers are able to complete online application forms for prescribed appliances and equipment and lodge them with one of the four registering state regulators, or with the New Zealand regulator. This feature improves administration processing times for government and saves industry time and money. The system automatically checks the data as it is entered and prompts the user if changes are required. It helps industry by providing access to records entered previously by the applicant that can be copied as new registrations, and modified as needed, and allows progress of the application to be monitored. Online registrations started in 2002 with a substantial upgrade in 2004 to make it more user-friendly. Almost 9 out of 10 registrations are now lodged electronically. Upgraded user manuals for the system are also regularly posted on www.energyrating.gov.au.

Support for laboratories
In 2005, the checktest programme used seven laboratories with National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA) accreditation to screen test and develop standards to ensure that suppliers comply with the regulations and to set new MEPS levels. NATA laboratories are used exclusively for standards development and compliance programmes in Australia. NATA accreditation does not imply that the laboratory is accredited for the full range of possible tests covered by the standard, and some of these laboratories have imminent NATA accreditation for testing additional categories of equipment.
A list of laboratories and their accreditation status for each of the main product types is provided on http:// www.energyrating.gov.au/ supplementary.html NATA accreditation provides formal recognition of laboratory competence and independence in terms of personnel, their qualification and experience, equipment calibration, soundness of testing procedures and suitability of testing facilities. Accreditation is important as the checktest programme relies on a high degree of laboratory integrity to be credible to industry and consumers and, where necessary, for court actions.
Purchase of test reports
In 2005, the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme purchased thirteen test reports from the Australian Consumers Associations NATA accredited test research laboratory. The purchase of NATA test reports for failed units is a cost effective way to increase the number of appliances covered by the programme.
In 2005, State regulators have been either piloting infringement notice powers in their jurisdictions, or have already issued notices to electrical store retailers. Retailers can receive more than one infringement notice.
South Australian legislation has now been changed to permit infringement notices for minor breaches of the Electrical Products Act. The infringement notice fee is $315, for each breach.
Compliance monitoring and internet sales
In addition to retail store compliance, regulators have followed-up supply of unregistered and unlabelled equipment on internet auction sites such as eBay and obtained registration of these products. Notices to comply are sent to advertisers. The Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee is working with eBay to ensure that advertisers can only offer new proclaimed products that are registered for energy labelling or MEPS in Australia.
In Victoria, a fine of 50 penalty units or $524 may be made for each breach of section 68 of the Electricity Safety Act 1998 on prosecution in the Magistrates Court. Under Part 11A of the Electricity Safety Act 1998, Energy Safe Victoria may serve infringement notices for failure to comply with the Act. In 2005, one Infringement Notice was issued to an electrical retailer in Victoria
In Queensland the Electricity Act 1994 and Electricity Regulation 1994 allows for prosecution for failure to comply with requirements. This prosecution can be taken to court where the maximum penalty is up to $1500 per offence for an individual, or $7500 for a corporation. An alternative to taking proceeding to court is to issue an infringement notice up to $150 for an individual or $300 for a corporation for each offence.
Minimum Energy Performance Standards are made mandatory in Australia by state government legislation and regulations which give force to the relevant Australian Standards. Australian Standards provide a one-stop shop for stakeholders of the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme to address testing and performance requirements, and also energy labelling and minimum energy performance requirements for products. In 2005, industry worked collaboratively with Government to progress work on the following standards to be used for energy efficiency regulation in Australia:
Australia is contributing to ongoing work on revisions to the ISO air conditioner standards.
Revised editions of Part 1 and 2 standards for clothes washers (AS/NZS2040) were finalised and then published in December 2005. The new standards include standby measurement, rinse performance test methods and registration requirements for mandatory water labelling. All products on the market will be required to register to the new standards by 1 April 2007. Ongoing work is being undertaken to make the IEC method suitable for adoption in Australia, hopefully in about 2010. As a first step, use of IEC loads are being investigated. EEEC continues to coordinate ongoing testing requirements for clothes washers to determine the suitability of, and appropriate normalisation curves for each new batch made available for sale in Australia. These tests are commissioned through Test Research in Sydney and made available to the standards committee.
Revised editions of Part 1 and 2 standards for dishwashers (AS/NZS2007) were finalised and then published in December 2005. The new standards include standby measurement and registration requirements for mandatory water labelling. All products on the market will require registration to the new standards by 1 April 2007. A test programme to assess the performance of auto sensing dishwashers was undertaken in 2005. A total of 8 units were assessed on various programmes (including auto sensing) to better inform regulatory authorities about the likely impacts associated with the increasing use of these auto programmes in dishwashers. Investigations into the use of IEC detergent was also commenced in 2005.
Refrigerated Display Cabinets
In 2005, the refrigerator display cabinet standards development test programme that was commenced in 2003-04 was completed. This programme included refinements to the test method, comparative testing and assessment of the impact of differing door opening schedules, and air flow methods on the energy consumption. Minor amendments to the test standard AS1731 were progressed through 2005 with the aim of publication in 2006.
A fluorescent lamp test programme started in April 2004 (focusing firstly on the initial lumens output test and CRI measurement) was completed in 2005. In the 2005 testing programme testing was extended to include measurement of maintained efficacy as well as tests on a range of lamps to determine their mercury content. Draft amendments to the regulatory standard, which incorporate revised colour rendering requirements and mercury content, were released in 2005 for public comment. Amendments to the regulatory standard to incorporate these changes are expected in 2006.
Following development work conducted over the past few years the new standards which specify the test method and regulatory requirements for external power supplies, AS/NZS 4665, were published in early November 2005 (covering AS/NZS 4665.1:2005 Test method and energy performance mark, and AS/NZS 4665.2:2005 minimum energy performance standard requirements). Prescribed external power supplies will have to be registered as compliant with the new MEPS levels by 1 October 2007. The registration system is expected to be operational by April 2006.
The final version of AS/ NZS62301 - Measurement of standby power, was published in 2005. This standard replaces the interim standard published in 2003 and is based on IEC62301 published in 2005.
In 2005, twenty-five publications were released including technical reports, regulatory impact statements, joint work plans and policies and minimum energy performance standard profiles. A full listing of the publications is at Appendix 9 and electronic copies (and those of previous years) are available for download at http://www.energyrating. gov.au/library/index.html

APPENDIX 2 EQUIPMENT ENERGY EFFICIENCY COMMITTEE MEMBER ORGANISATIONS
The Commonwealth, New Zealand and each state and territory are represented on the Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee and participate in its deliberations. Representatives are officials within government departments, agencies and statutory authorities or people appointed to represent these bodies. Representatives are usually a senior officer directly responsible for energy efficiency. The membership is currently under review and may expand to include other agencies working in these fields. Current membership includes:
Queenslands Department of Energy develops policies and regulation that encourage new investment in the State and ensure continued delivery of reliable and competitively priced energy. Through the Department, the Queensland Government seeks to continually improve services to energy consumers and encourage the growth of the gas sector and new renewable energy technologies. The Department also plays a key role in promoting innovative energy technologies, sustainable energy development, and increased energy efficiency. The Electrical Safety Office, Department of Industrial Relations is the Queensland Technical Regulator responsible for electrical safety and appliance and equipment energy efficiency. The Office ensures compliance with electrical safety and efficiency regulations throughout Queensland.
Western Australian Department of Consumer and Employment Protections purpose is to create an employment and trading environment that protects workers and consumers. DOCEPs key strategies to achieve this are to provide information so that consumers and traders, employers and employees can exercise their rights and meet their obligations; To review laws regulating the employment and trading marketplace; To monitor and enforce compliance with laws governing consumer protection, labour relations, energy safety, resource safety and occupational health and safety, and; To deliver consumer and employment protection outcomes that meet government, stakeholder and community expectations. The Western Australian Sustainable Energy Development Office promotes more efficient energy use and increased use of renewable energy to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase jobs in related industries.
The South Australian Office of the Technical Regulator seeks to coordinate development and implementation of policies and regulatory responsibilities for the safe, efficient and responsible provision and use of energy for the benefit of the South Australian community.
The Department of Planning and Infrastructure was created in July 2005 from the former Department of Infrastructure, Planning and Environment. The environment component has now transferred to the newly formed Department of Natural Resources, Environment and The Arts. The Department enables state Government to provide opportunities to better coordinate planning and development of the Territorys economic infrastructure, while balancing this with the need to protect and conserve the natural environment and heritage values and to achieve efficiencies in delivering services to Government.
The expanded Equipment Energy Efficiency programme to be implemented under this package involves the continuation and expansion of the successful elements of the existing programme as well as the addition of new elements as shown at Table 8. The Equipment Energy Efficiency programmes guiding principles will also be updated to facilitate the introduction of more stringent MEPS levels and make the programme responsive to other key policy drivers:
> Mandate to regulate any
> lead the world with
energy consuming product, subject to a positive cost-benefit study, and stakeholder and community consultation. The benefits of reduced peak demand and reduced water consumption will also be taken into consideration in the regulatory impact statement where appropriate. > A more pragmatic approach to establishing MEPS levels by selecting the most appropriate option (in decreasing order of preference) from:
regulatory standards where there is no significant manufacturing base and is supported by industry; > match worlds best regulatory practice where there is a significant domestic manufacturing base; to > use market regressions to remove a percentage of the least efficient products where there is no basis for international comparison or as part of a two-step process where a product type has not been previously regulated. > Monitor and report on technical and regulatory developments relating to DSM and demand response to identify options to facilitate further reductions in peak demand through appliance and equipment standards.
> Regular review of existing
MEPS levels, with stability periods of less than four to five years, where this is acceptable to industry stakeholders. > Coordination, and ideally harmonisation of the Equipment Energy Efficiency programmes forward work plan with New Zealand through a policy framework approved by the Ministerial Council on Energy.
