Commercial refrigeration

Certain types of commercial refrigerated display cabinets are required to meet minimum energy performance standards (MEPS).

MEPS are currently under review and new measures are proposed, including:

  • Extending MEPS to other types of commercial refrigeration,
  • Adopting a new international method of test,
  • Updating MEPS levels to align with levels that apply in Europe, and
  • Introducing an energy rating label based on the label that applies in Europe.

Consultation on this proposal occurred in 2016 and a final decision will be made within the coming year.

More information on this proposal and the consultation that occurred is available on the Energy Rating website.
