Singapore Strengthens Energy Efficiency Measures for Household Appliances with Extended Standards Implementation

Your substances


Singapore is promoting energy efficiency in households through the implementation of its Mandatory Energy Labelling Scheme (MELS) and Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS). These policy measures, established in 2008 and 2011 respectively, aim to enhance the average energy efficiency of regulated goods used by Singapore households. To further this objective, several measures will be introduced, including extending MEPS and MELS to portable air-conditioners starting from April 1, 2024, revising standards for regulated lamps and expanding their requirements to encompass more lamp types, and extending MEPS and standby power requirements to televisions from April 1, 2025. Additionally, revisions to MEPS for split-type air-conditioners and refrigerators are planned to take effect from April 1, 2025. Furthermore, test standards for new and renewal registrations will be revised to align with the latest editions of international standards starting from January 1, 2024. These efforts demonstrate Singapore's commitment to promoting energy efficiency and sustainability in its residential sector.
