The South African government through the Department of Energy in collaboration with the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti), and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is implementing the project, Market Transformation through the Introduction of Energy Efficiency Standards and the Labelling of Household Appliances in South Africa (S&L Project). The project is designed with the objective of removing inefficient appliances from the South African market by imposing new minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for certain appliances. The project forms an integral part of the measures and interventions aimed at reducing electricity consumption in the residential sector and by extension will contribute towards the reduction of the country’s carbon footprints. The project will also pave the way for the continuous introduction of energy efficiency improvements into the appliances and equipment industry.
