Refrigerated Display and Storage Cabinets

1st February 2018

COAG Energy Council

On 24 November 2017, the COAG Energy Council agreed to changes to energy efficiency regulation for refrigerated display and storage cabinets.

The changes will increase Minimum Energy Performance Standard (MEPS) for commercial refrigerated display cabinets and refrigerated storage cabinets to harmonise with MEPS levels adopted by Europe in 2017. In addition, the changes will result in adopting international test standards, rather than a regionally specific Australian and New Zealand test standards, and provide consumers with accessible and comparable information on refrigerated commercial cabinet energy efficiency.

A decision Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) was prepared by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority in New Zealand on behalf of the trans-Tasman Equipment Energy Efficiency programme and assessed as compliant with the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) RIS Guidelines by the Office of Best Practice Regulation (OBPR).

The decision RIS can be found on the Energy Rating website.
