|So far so good. I plan to take this travelling with me, so I hope it's as rugged as it promises. great product, this is the second one i've bought for another mac. installs in a snap w/ time machine and backup fast. No problems with it so far. I use it on my work computer, which is already slow. So it may not be the HDs fault that it backs up so slowly.|

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.
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.
With all proposed product profiles published now, the program focus in 2005 moves to enhanced measurements and monitoring, to track the impact of the strategy and identify products which may require mandatory action.
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.
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.
SUPPORT FOR LABORATORIES
To have a robust compliance program and to help develop new standards, there must be confidence that laboratory test methods are repeatable, reproducible and cost effective. Everyone affected by the standards needs to be equally confident that they can be achieved. Both government and industry rely on the technical expertise of leading laboratory personnel when formulating or modifying standards and need certainty that laboratories have the necessary capacity to meet their legal obligations. In 2004, the Checktest program 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 programs 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. NATA accreditation provides a formal recognition of laboratory competence and independence in terms of personnel and their qualification and experience, equipment calibration, soundness of testing procedures and suitability of testing facilities. Accreditation is important as the Checktest program relies on a high degree of laboratory integrity to be credible to industry and consumers and, where necessary, for court actions. There has been some concern that a NATA accredited laboratory for testing electric motors in Australia is owned by a major supplier, however another laboratory in South Australia has been contracted and has undertaken to gain NATA accreditation by 30 April this year. Other laboratories in New South Wales and Victoria are also being assessed for NATA accreditation and
CHECKTEST PROG RAM
In December 2004 the Ministerial Council on Energy agreed that NAEEEP be: expanded via the introduction of new or more stringent MEPS for residential, commercial and industrial products, with a key focus on increasing the number of commercial and industrial products regulated, and broadened in scope to include mandatory MEPS and labelling for gas products.

During 2004, a second round of testing of selfcontained commercial refrigeration cabinets was undertaken at Mechlab and SGS Australia, including one round robin unit. These tests incorporated revised test methods based on recommendations derived from the 2003 standards development program. The Commercial Refrigeration steering committee and Standards Australia subsequently agreed to make a series of modifications to the test standard.

In 2002 there were about 220,000 hits on the Energy Rating website. By 2003, the number increased to 523,000 representing 80,000 visits by individual users. In 2004 this grew to 1.1 million hits from 192,000 visits. The Australian Greenhouse Office responded to nearly 676 email enquiries on behalf of NAEEEC.
AN N UAL STAK EHO L DER S FORUM
NAEEEC held its seventh annual stakeholder forum in Sydney in March last year. The forum provides an opportunity to release plans for the next year and inform stakeholders of achievements and developments. It also provides an opportunity for stakeholders to comment on the program and for government officials to listen to ideas and concerns from the public and interested parties. Almost 100 participants attended the forum from industry, regulators, Commonwealth and state and territory government agencies, testing authorities, academia and consultants. The format included a plenary session followed by five workshops to promote discussion and provide opportunities for participants to express their views. The final session captured and reviewed the outcomes of the day. For more information visit www.energyrating.gov.au under NAEEEC.
The Energy Star website www.energystar.gov.au is the Australian portal for the international voluntary endorsement labelling program operated by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Energy Star received about 18,000 visitors in 2004 who accessed nearly 70,000 files. The Energy Star program recognises the most energy efficient office equipment and home entertainment products. Australia is an Energy Star Partner and participates in a range of activities within the program. Energy Star rated products have a low standby power consumption. In Australia and New Zealand the Energy Star label is found on: TVs DVD players audio products computers printers, and photocopiers.

NATIONAL STANDBY STRATEGY 2002-2012
The Ministerial Council on Energys national standby strategy, Money isnt all youre saving, is the culmination of extensive stakeholder consultation that includes open forums and face-to-face discussions. The strategys key plank is identifying possible problem products and developing and releasing standby product profiles. The profiles provide background information, proposed measures government will employ and a date for review. During 2004, a number of standby profiles were released at several events including the stakeholder forum in March, an APEC air conditioner conference in June and a standby forum in October. The table below outlines profiles released and the proposed targets. After extensive stakeholder consultation it was been decided to remove set top boxes and home entertainment equipment (such as stereos and home theatre systems) from the standby process and investigate MEPS options for these products.

While some profiles are still to be released in 2005, the program focus will now shift to monitoring and evaluating products covered by the profiles. Many of these will be assessed in 2006 and NAEEEC will then report on progress towards voluntary targets for each of the product types and brands within each category, and make decisions about what actions, if any, will be implemented towards stage 2. The strategy, all profiles, presentations and associated publications can be found on the Energy Rating website at www.energyrating.gov.au under Energy Programs/Standby Power.
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

SWITCH ON GAS NATIONAL G AS S TRA TEG Y 2005- 2015
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.
Switch on Gas will improve the energy efficiency of gas products through a nationally consistent energy efficiency regulatory regime and a series of threeyear work plans commencing in 200506. Its focus will be to improve the efficiency standards of gas products by applying performance standards to facilitate trade and reduce business costs, match developments overseas and improve verification of performance and labelling of targeted products.

The 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 Tasmanian Governments interest is managed by the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources Office of Energy Planning and Conservation (OEPC). OPEC provides policy advice on energy related matters including energy efficiency. Electricity Standards and Safety, Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources, is the technical regulator responsible for electrical safety throughout Tasmania. Regulatory responsibilities include electrical licensing, appliance approval and equipment energy efficiency. The ACT Office of Sustainability was established in January 2002 to develop, facilitate and coordinate the implementation of policies and procedures related to sustainability. From the end of 2004, the Office has expanded to take on responsibility for energy and greenhouse policy, including energy efficiency issues. The ACT Planning and Land Authority is the ACT technical regulator responsible for electrical safety and equipment efficiency. The Department of Employment, Education and Training is responsible for administering regulations in the Northern Territory on various aspects of safety, performance and licensing for goods and services including electrical appliances.
The Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA) is the principal body responsible for delivering New Zealands National Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy. EECAs function is to encourage, promote and support energy efficiency, energy conservation and the use of renewable energy sources. The Ministry for Environment (MfE) is the lead department in New Zealand advising the Minister of Energy on the development of government policy advice on energy efficiency, conservation and the use of renewable sources of energy. It works with EECA and also monitors its performance under the Public Finance Act.

INAUGURAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY AWARDS
The Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee acknowledges the significant contribution of stakeholders who have helped to drive improvements in the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment sold in Australia and New Zealand. In 2005 the inaugural Energy Efficiency Star Awards were presented at Parliament House in Canberra on 14 September. The recipients were:
International Energy Star Award Lighting Council Australia
In 2005, it is projected that approximately half a billion compact fluorescent lamps will be sold throughout the world requiring 12 Terawatt hours of electricity. This is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from almost 3 million vehicles. As the sales of these lamps are expected to double by 2012, it is critically important that we highlight which compact fluorescent lamps are the most efficient, using an internationally recognised rating scale. The Council is also establishing a high level memorandum of understanding with its Chinese counterpart, the China Association of the Lighting Industry.
Domestic Energy Star Award Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturers Association
The projected greenhouse savings from minimum energy performance standards from single phase air conditioners, based on the present phase-in timetable, will be 16.1 Mt CO2e over the period 2004-2020. If the phase-in were deferred 18 months the savings over 2004-2020 would be 13.4 Mt, the difference being 2.7 Mt CO2-e.
Professional Energy Star Award Dr George Wilkenfeld
The Lighting Council Australia encourages international cooperation on the energy efficiency of lighting products. For example, the Council and its members were strong advocates of the first international Community of Practice on compact fluorescent lamps and also supported the release of an international accord to develop a testing methodology and performance specifications that can be adopted throughout the world on either a voluntary or regulatory basis.
Dr Wilkenfeld has made a substantial contribution to the delivery of a more effective and refined energy efficient policy framework for Australia. His many contributions include:
> Playing a key role
This association has provided extensive advice and assistance to government to develop more stringent energy performance standards to increase energy efficiency within the air-conditioning industry. Its push for higherlevel energy performance standards (MEPS) to be implemented 18 months earlier than planned, as well as its leadership role on the manufacture and supply of products that already meet these high performance levels are outstanding achievements.
in developing and implementing the appliance energy labelling programme in Australia since it began in the early 1980s. Dr Wilkenfeld continues to provide input into the development and maintenance of the programme. > Developing a framework for Regulatory Impact Statements for assessing government regulatory energy policies. These statements have been praised by the Office of Regulatory Review as examples of best practice in Australia today

TRANS-TASMAN LABELLING SURVEY
In 2005, the Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee conducted a quantitative study of electricity, gas and water labels within Australian and New Zealand. The broad objectives of the survey were to provide: of awareness, attitudes, and the use of the three labels; and > relative importance of labelling in the purchase decision-making process. The key findings of the study will now be used to inform the communication strategies of the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme and include: level of recognition of the energy label in mainland Australia - 94% of the general public claim to be aware (unaided) of the electricity energy label, in contrast 41% of the public are aware of the water label prompted by water authorities and 15% are aware of the gas efficiency label prompted by that industry. Table 2 shows the level of awareness (prompted) of the Energy label by jurisdiction. > energy rating labels have become a significant influence in consumer purchasing decisions; and

The Equipment Energy Efficiency programme has long held links with other national and regional activities which have supported Australian regulators applying the knowledge and lessons from overseas experiences to our own programme. In 2005, the key international exchanges included:
> 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.

> The way legislation operates
The programme has supplied two labelling schemes. In 2005, the Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee recognised that two endorsement labels in the appliance and equipment market was an undesirable outcome for all stakeholders: To overcome this problem, the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme has designed a transition to Energy Star for all relevant products. It is seen as the best vehicle given the global nature of the label and the relevance this had to the majority of suppliers. Energy Star also enables wider leveraging of marketing activities. Refrigerators and freezers are the first likely products to make the transition, proposed for April 2007. In the interim, TESAW criteria remain in place and a list of TESAW star rated appliances for 2005 is provided at Appendix 8. The full list of TESAW rated products is available at http://www. energyrating.gov.au/tesawmain.html
> The Top Energy Saver
Award Winner (TESAW) is an Australian Government award that recognises the most efficient products on the market. It applies to both electric and gas products that carry an Energy Rating label and is designed to help consumers quickly identify the most efficient products on the market.

REGULATORY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
The Equipment Energy Efficiency programme is expected to meet the requirements for the creation of national regulations by complying with regulatory processes in both Australia and New Zealand. Preparation of a Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) is a critical feature of the regulatory process and helps to ensure that the costs and benefits (both social and economic) of regulating a product are canvassed in a timely, systematic, objective and in a transparent manner with a recommendation supporting the most effective and efficient option. In 2005, a regulatory impact statement was released for public comment on the proposal to bring forward the date for introducing more stringent MEPS for room air conditioners.
Revisions to the most common non-ducted single phase MEPS levels are planned to occur in April 2006, and October 2008. MEPS revisions for all other types are scheduled for October 2007. Once all of the levels are implemented, these revised MEPS levels will be equivalent to world best regulatory practice for this product group. There are ongoing reviews of changes to MEPS levels that are occurring in other countries.
UPCOMING REGULATORY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS
Regulatory impact assessments are planned for a number of household appliances and commercial and industrial equipment during 2006 and 2007 as detailed at Table 5. Further updates will be available as they occur at www.energyrating.gov. au/considered.html.

In 2005, the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme continued to use a variety of compliance strategies to maintain the integrity of the programme that included:
> Checktest regime to ensure
Since 1991, the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme has conducted checktesting of products which ensures that the labelling and MEPS scheme maintains high levels of credibility both with consumers and manufacturers. In 2005, Energy Safe Victoria (regulator) and Energy Efficient Strategies (technical consultant) managed the checktest programme which included laboratory validity testing, round robin testing, equipment check testing and standards development for a range of product types. Screen tests (Stage 1 checktest) were conducted on units identified as at risk of failing MEPS or labelling standards by compliance inspections, competitors or market intelligence. Table 6 summarises the tests undertaken.
that the labelling and MEPS scheme maintain high levels of credibility both with consumers and manufacturers. This programme aimed to test products that were suspected of being noncompliant - this is why the failure rates were so high; > Use of laboratories as part of checktesting to screen, test and develop standards to ensure that suppliers comply with regulations; > Issuing of infringement notices by state regulators.
In all 25 failures, the suppliers claimed performance was not supported by testing conducted at NATA accredited laboratories. All cases of screen test failure are referred to the regulatory authority in the jurisdiction where the product was registered. The regulatory authority may take a range of actions including amendment of the registration, ordering additional testing (known as Stage 2 checktesting) or deregistering the product. Regulatory actions completed in 2005 against products that failed a checktest in or prior to 2005 are detailed in Table 7.

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.

The Energyrating website commenced in 2000 and is now the main access point for all appliance and equipment efficiency programmes. The website address has been displayed on all appliance energy labels since 2000. Website usage has increased dramatically in recent years as illustrated in the following tables. The website has two main sections: the first provides information and reports about government energy efficiency programmes and regulatory requirements; the second provides consumers with an interactive listing of all registered products (search).
Item Total Visits Website hits total (million) 0.2003
In 2005 there were about 14,500 hits on the Energy allstars rating website. The website was launched in 2005 and will serve as 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 Ministerial Council on Energy and the Australian Procurement and Construction Ministerial Council has endorsed the use of Energy Allstars to assist governments in determining whole-of-life costs when procuring relevant products. 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.
The Energy Star website is the Australian portal for the international voluntary endorsement labelling programme operated by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Energy Star received about 70,000 hits in 2005. The Energy Star program recognises the most energy efficient office equipment and home entertainment products. Australia is an Energy Star Partner and participates in a range of activities within the programme. Energy Star rated products have low standby power consumption. In Australia and New Zealand the Energy Star is found on TVs, DVD players, audio products, computers, printers, and photocopiers.
The Equipment Energy Efficiency Committee received funding from the Ministerial Council on Energy in FY 200405 of $1.55 million and in FY 2005-06 of $1.533 million.

The charter of EEEC encompasses the following functions: > to provide assistance to
> to monitor programme
all States and Territories, as required, in the development and regulatory implementation of technical, legal, and administrative aspects of national appliance and equipment energy efficiency initiatives; to coordinate the national development and implementation of energy efficiency programmes of a non-regulatory nature and enhance existing regulator programmes. These may include voluntary labelling initiatives, market transformation projects, and similar voluntary actions; to coordinate national marketing and communication projects to support new, and enhance existing, energy efficiency programmes; to review existing appliance energy consumption and improve standards and test procedures;
performance and achievements; > to provide a forum to exchange information on enforcement/compliance issues and community information and marketing initiatives; > to administer an effective, coordinated testing regime of the energy efficiency claims of suppliers; > to coordinate broad consultative processes with industry and other interested parties in the development and implementation of energy labelling and associated programmes. This charter recognises the maturity of the programme and the need for a holistic approach to government policies for greenhouse gas abatement in the appliance and equipment field. The focus of the programme continues to be the delivery of nationally consistent regulation. The implementation of most voluntary programmes remains an individual jurisdictional responsibility although voluntary programmes that assist the regulatory programme to maximise benefits are being added to EEECs work plans.
APPENDIX 4 NATIONAL FRAMEWORK FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY (NFEE) Stage One Implementation Plan December 2004 Equipment Energy Efficiency Package
The Equipment Energy Efficiency package aims to drive improvements to the energy efficiency of major energy using appliances and equipment. It will achieve this by increasing the number of products covered by the existing Equipment Energy Efficiency programme, increasing the stringency of existing minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) requirements through a process of regular review, and increasing the intensity of the programme in key areas so that a range of programme tools are used to maximise the energy saving outcomes. Specifically, under this package, the Ministerial Council on Energy has agreed that the existing Equipment Energy Efficiency programme will be:
> broadened in scope to
An expanded and accelerated Equipment Energy Efficiency programme could deliver even larger savings and yet remain highly cost-effective:
> Independent experts
CURRENT STATE OF PLAY
The Equipment Energy Efficiency programme is an existing nationally coordinated programme to improve the energy efficiency of, and reduce greenhouse emissions from residential, commercial and industrial appliances and equipment. The main tools employed are mandatory MEPS and energy labelling, and voluntary measures including information provision, endorsement labelling, training and support to promote high efficiency products. The New Zealand government created its own mandatory MEPS and labelling programme in 2002 after initially operating a voluntary labelling scheme. Since 2000, key factors which have underpinned the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme are:
> a mandate to regulate any
include MEPS and labelling for gas products; and > expanded through the introduction of new or more stringent MEPS for residential, commercial and industrial products, with a key focus on increasing the number of commercial and industrial products regulated. The Equipment Energy Efficiency programme is a very cost effective policy measure for governments, and has demonstrated significant energy and greenhouse savings as well as net economic benefits. The current programme is projected to deliver energy savings of around 5 PJ a year below business-as-usual in 2004, rising to 33 PJ in 2010 and 68 PJ in 2020.
estimate that the current programme has an average benefit/cost ratio of 2.4 to 1, and is achieving greenhouse gas abatement at a cost of minus $30/ tonne, indicating potential for further expansion. The Equipment Energy Efficiency programmes current policy basis limits the scope for further expansion. By end 2006, Australia is likely to have implemented MEPS for all electrical products currently regulated by our major trading partners. Expansion would then rely on new products being regulated overseas or existing worlds best practice MEPS being tightened. The Equipment Energy Efficiency programmes current guidelines require MEPS levels to be fixed for around four to five years. A more flexible approach, where agreed by industry, would enable MEPS levels to be reviewed more frequently and more closely track regulatory changes undertaken by our major trading partners. To date, the Equipment Energy Efficiency programme has focused on only electrical products. Gas appliances are covered by an industry-run scheme which lacks drivers for improving efficiency.
