Hot water systems

Electric Storage Water Heaters, Gas Storage Water Heaters and Gas instantaneous water heaters must currently meet minimum energy performance (MEPS) requirements.

There are no energy performance requirements currently in place for solar water heaters, heat pump water heaters or electric instantaneous water heaters.

The E3 Programme is now looking at reviewing labelling and MEPS for hot water systems. EECA launched an RFP to procure consultancy services to support policy development around possible new standards and labelling in New Zealand and Australia. This closed on Monday 15 January at 3pm.

Stay tuned for further updates on Hot Water Systems and the opportunity to take part in consultations.
