Local Energy Production Local Production 4% Imported Energy 96%
:Addressed Appliances Refrigerators Freezers Washing Machines Air Conditions
Criteria for Selecting Products: significant amount of energy presence in most households significant variation in the energy efficiency of different units
:Strategic Approach of the Project – A Preparation of an enabling energy efficiency law, to support the introduction of a Standards and Labelling system. Provide relevant Government ministries with technical assistance and support for the introduction of the first set of appliance standard and labelling regulations as well as support for the design and implementation of support programs. Provide tools and methods to the ministries responsible for enforcement so they can ensure that the new regulations are applied over and over again.
:Strategic Approach of the Project – B Transform the appliances market in Jordan towards more energy efficient technologies through the introduction of energy performance labelling and a set of minimum energy performance standards. Educate customers on the importance of selecting a high efficiency appliance to avoid medium- and long-term operating costs. Encourage retailers to offer more efficient products in Jordan. Setting up comprehensive consumer awareness to inform end-users about the energy efficiency of appliances and equipment as well as the costs and benefits of more efficient products
