Fans (non-domestic)

Fans are not currently regulated for energy efficiency in New Zealand and Australia.

Consultation occurred in May 2017 on a proposal to adopt MEPS for industrial fans, based on European regulations, and an option to develop a purchaser education programme to drive demand for energy efficient fan units.

As a next step, submissions are being assessed and final recommendations developed. A Working Group including industry representatives and technical practitioners is working through key technical and implementation issues.

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