SEAD Policy Exchange Forum on Communication Strategies for Energy Efficiency Labels

04 Jun 2019

Please save the date on Wednesday, 19 June 2019 at 13:00 CEST for a SEAD Policy Exchange forum. Discussions will revolve around the power of labelling communications to empower consumers, shift behaviour and appliance markets to prioritise and value efficiency, and pull markets to the highest quality, lowest impact appliances and products. 

Labels inform smart choices on efficient and quality products. More efficient products consume less energy, which leads to lower operating costs and reduced environmental impacts. Labels help high-performing products to stand out, providing information on their performance and quality, which as a result, drive competition and innovation. Effective labelling program communication on the benefits of efficient appliances creates awareness among consumers and help them to make informed choices. 

Case studies will be presented by the European Commission, the Republic of South Africa, and Ghana, highlighting their experiences on communication strategies for energy efficiency labels, and sparking a discussion around this topic.

Following the presentations, there will be an open Q&A session, during which participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and contribute to the discussion.

You can register here.

Event details, agenda, and presentations will be posted to the SEAD website

 

SEAD is an IPEEC task group and an initiative of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM). Its aim is for governments to work together to save energy, turn knowledge into action, and advance global markets to encompass energy efficient products. It does so by accelerating and strengthening the design and implementation of energy efficient appliance policies, promoting the manufacture, purchase and use of more energy efficient products, and developing tools and product databases to implement programme changes.
