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