COAG Consultation Regulation Impact Statement – COAG Energy Council

On 24 November 2016, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) Energy Council released a Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) for consultation examining ways to improve the energy efficiency of residential and commercial lighting in Australia and New Zealand.

The Consultation RIS examines the adequacy of existing regulations on incandescent and halogen lamps, self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps, double-capped fluorescent lamps and ballasts for fluorescent lamps. Additionally, it considers placing mandatory minimum energy performance requirements on light emitting diode (LED) lamp technology and non-integrated commercial luminaires.

The consultation period closes on 24 February 2017.
