E3 (Equipment Energy Efficiency) has released a revised version of the paper Chillers: Final policy positions for public comment. The paper outlines the results of feedback on the consultation paper Chillers: Updated policy positions that was published in June 2018.
The E3 committee published a consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) and a supplementary consultation paper in 2016 with proposals to update the regulations for air conditioners and chillers. Feedback on these papers demonstrated a need for additional consideration to be given to the chiller policy options.
The aim of the proposed changes is to provide cost effective energy savings, while making the regulations more effective, easier to comply with and easier to administer. The Energy Efficiency Advisory Team (EEAT) considers the best way to meet all these objectives is by aligning with the regulations and certification schemes operating in the US and in Europe.
The paper is available to download here.
Written submissions are due by close of business on Friday, September 21. Submissions should include the subject “Chillers” and be sent via email to email@example.com for Australia or to firstname.lastname@example.org for New Zealand.
