Boosting Energy Performance of Air Conditioners in ASEAN

Boosting Energy Performance of Air Conditioners in ASEAN

Bangkok, 13 Nov 2015: With the ASEAN market for air conditioners projected to grow annually by 10 per cent over the next five years, UNEP is working with the ASEAN Standard Harmonization Initiative for Energy Efficiency (ASEAN SHINE) to improve energy performance of room air conditioners and to establish uniform minimum energy performance standards across the countries in ASEAN.

A study undertaken by the project in October 2015 found that the increasing use of air-conditioning is pushing up electricity consumption, which is estimated to account for nearly half of total residential and commercial power demand in ASEAN economies. It also found that in some countries, the majority of room air conditioners are already above the existing national energy efficiency standards.

ASEAN-SHINE will raise and harmonize energy performance standards of conditioners and help countries develop national policy roadmaps. These roadmaps will be based on a regional road map, which sets a regional target for minimum energy performance standard for air conditioners that was endorsed by ASEAN governments this year.
