The E3 Programme is planning a review of the existing requirements for televisions, and will assess opportunities for further energy efficiency gains.

An E3 project to review the minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for chillers has been initiated. A consultation Regulatory Impact Statement will be developed.

E3 is currently seeking your views on whether all new air conditioners and heat pumps, electric hot water cylinders, and electric vehicle chargers sold in New Zealand should be demand response capable.

On 27 May 2019, the New Zealand Cabinet approved the E3 policy proposal for introducing minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and labeling requirements for LED lamps.

Air conditioners and heat pumps must comply with minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) if they’re to be sold in New Zealand. MEPS currently apply to single phase units, and three phase units, and multi-split units. Single-phase non-ducted air conditioners and heat pumps must also display the energy rating label.

In May 2019, New Zealand Cabinet approved the E3 policy proposal to revise the MEPS and energy labeling requirements for air conditioners and heat pumps. A process to amend current regulations is underway.

In April 2019, E3 agreed to put the non-domestic fans project on hold.

In May 2018, New Zealand Cabinet approved the E3 policy proposal to revise the minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for commercial refrigeration. A process to amend current regulations is underway.
