1 The Importance of Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement for Lighting Products Peter Banwell, Environmental Protection Agency Energy Star Program Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic August 4,

2 Need for MVE Overview: National Efficiency Programs are expanding Standards and Labeling Programs – Key Policies Monitoring, Verification and Enforcement (MVE) activities can complement standards and labeling This area tends to receive less attention than policy development 2

3 Benefits of MVE to Parties 3

4 MVE - USA Cadillac Large Truck Manufacturers 4 Fines Recall – 470,000 cars Fines, Spending $ 1.1 billion

5 MVE - Japan Japanese Refrigerators – Reported Energy vs Actual 5

6 Lighting Performance Specifications – Harmonization Benefits 6 Essential product performance requirements Measurement units Luminous efficiencyLumen/Watt Product LifetimeHours Lumen maintenance (at 3 points in hours Mercury contentMilligrams Operating voltageVolts to Volts Switching withstandNumber of switches over life

7 Comparative Labels 7

8 Endorsement Labels 8

9 MVE Levels / Costs 9

10 Lighting MVE – USA Example 10 Started in 2000 in response to – complaints – lack of verification testing

11 MVE Process – USA 11 Products identified by sponsors Samples purchased at retail Products sent (by mail) to certified lighting laboratory

12 Compact Fluorescent MVE Results Cycles Rapid cycle stress test still challenging

13 Energy Star MVE 13 Industry (partner) funded Off the shelf retail sampling Certified lighting lab De-listing of poorly performing products

14 Lighting MVE – USA LED Example 14

15 LED MVE Results 15

16 MVE Results, Asia CFLs

17 National Impacts - Monitoring 17 Lawrence Berkeley Labs, citing Bloomberg

18 MVE and Phase Out Programs Complement each other 18 With improved design and the implementation of MVE schemes, it is possible to: Measure energy efficiency actions, Assess the relevant impacts of program approaches. Curtail the high levels of non-compliance Increase the effectiveness of phase-out programs such as standards and/or labeling.

19 Recommendations 19 Regional cooperation –harmonization of lighting performance levels/MEPS Regional cooperation-laboratory testing/sharing Governments -plan ahead with MVE budgets and funding schemes Communications with industry is essential penalties should be real Consult with Enlighten Initiative for assistance in developing specific plans

20 Thank you Peter Banwell ENERGY STAR Program Washington DC
