ENERGY STAR®

EECA awards the ENERGY STAR® mark to products and appliances with superior energy efficiency within their category.

The ENERGY STAR® mark is retiring at the end of 2017. EECA started using the voluntary ENERGY STAR label in 2005 as a quick guide to help consumers choose energy efficient appliances. ENERGY STAR has become less relevant as the trans-Tasman E3 programme has gained momentum – this programme regulates to remove the worst performing products from the market and lets consumers compare the energy efficiency of appliances through the Energy Rating Label.
