How we develop new requirements

Revising or developing new measures is an extensive process. The steps include:

  • engaging with industry to understand product markets
  • identifying and assessing options to improve energy efficiency
  • seeking public and industry feedback on proposed change
  • developing Standards and technical requirements with industry
  • seeking Cabinet approval
  • helping industry to transition to the new requirements.

Equipment Energy Efficiency (E3) members maintain regular communication with key industry stakeholders through direct relationships and the E3 Review Committee.
