Towards a low emissions future

Info sessions around Australia to educate on new energy labels for new AC equipment

9 August 2019
A new climate zoned energy label is now required on new AC equipment as a result of the changes fo the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS).
To assist industry, retailers and the community to better undersand the new label, the Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Regulator is holding information sessions around Australia. The target audience is those who have contact with end use customers, so mainly retail store staff and installers. Members of the Ozone and
Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Program from the Department will also attend to present on the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase down and licencing arrangements. The sessions will focus on how to read the new label and explain it to customers, the transition arrangements between the old and new labels, and how to correctly display the new label in retail stores.
Sessions wil run for approximately two hours.
