North American Energy Efficiency Report Released

U.S. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, Canadian Natural Resources Minister Herb Dhaliwal and Mexican Energy Secretary Ernesto Martens have released the report North American Energy Efficiency Standards And Labeling.

Washington, D.C. – January 9, 2003 [] This is the second report of the North American Energy Working Group (NAEWG), a group of senior energy officials from Canada, the United States and Mexico. “Energy efficiency standards, test procedures and appliance labeling are key elements in support of our three countries’ goals of energy security, environmental protection and economic growth,” Abraham said. “This work between the United States, Canada and Mexico will bring the growing market for energy efficient goods and services to North America’s door.” The report, North American Energy Efficiency Standards And Labeling, highlights that as a result of Mexico’s recent adoption of new standards for energy efficiency, the three countries will have harmonized minimum efficiency requirements and test procedures for refrigerators, freezers, electric motors and window air conditioners before the end of the first quarter of 2003, strengthening the market for high-efficiency products in North America. North American Energy Efficiency Standards And Labeling provides an update on the group’s progress on energy efficiency, describes why standards and labeling programs are effective instruments in meeting energy efficiency goals, explains the different processes and institutional contexts for these programs in each country, and identifies where commonalities and differences exist.
