Maldives Energy Authority (MEA) launched an online survey for Energy Efficiency Label design. The purpose of the survey is to identify consumer preferences in designing the label to be used in Maldives.
As this would be the first energy efficiency standards and label programme to be implemented in the Maldives, in order to give the surveyed the basic understanding about the programme, general information about energy efficiency label and the purpose of the label are included in the cover page of the survey form.
The survey questioner consists of 8 questions with 3 or 4 options to choose from. The questions includes; the preferred shape of the label, the preferred grading parameter, the preferred place to see the label placed on air conditioners, refrigerators and automatic washing machines.
The activity is carried out under the project Strengthening Low Carbon Energy Island Strategies (LCEI) Project. LCEI project aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy efficiency in the building sector. It is designed with a goal of market transformation for energy efficient technologies in buildings and the built environment in the Maldives; and promotion of energy efficiency investments in buildings.
LCEI Project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and executed by the Ministry with implementation support from UN Environment.
