Standards and ratings
In New Zealand, we have a number of standards and ratings for products, appliances and vehicles.
Using standards limits the worst energy performers available for sale in New Zealand. Ratings and labels make it easy for you to understand the energy efficiency of products you're considering investing in for your business.
