1 Energy rating labels for televisions

2 When will the labels appear? Some TVs already have energy rating labels – these models have been participating in a voluntary program that started in late 2008 From 1 October 2009 energy efficiency regulations will be introduced across Australia All TVs imported after 1 October will have to display an energy rating label and be registered at

3 Managing the move to TV energy labels Regulations require that TVs imported after 1 October have a label attached when on display This means that you should check that: TVs on your showroom floor have labels TVs delivered to your store have labels If you find a TV without a label – notify your supervisor and ask your supplier to send some labels for that model ( Keep in mind that the television is permitted to be sold without a label IF it was imported prior to October. You should check the status of the model with the supplier and note their response)

4 Why introduce TV energy labels? Over the last 20 years, TV energy use has increased 300% There are now more than 18 million TVs in Australia Each year about two million TVs are sold In one day, a large widescreen TV can use more energy than a dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer combined

5 How will TV energy labels help? Energy rating labels will allow customers to consider energy use when choosing a TV The labels show the energy savings of more efficient TVs Together with minimum energy performance standards for TVs, the labels will encourage manufacturers to keep improving TV energy efficiency

6 What are the benefits for customers? Energy star labels are well-recognised and understood Most customers think about energy efficiency at some stage when buying a fridge, clothes washer or dishwasher because of the label But most Australians are not aware of the large amount of energy consumed by wide-screen TVs

7 What are the benefits for customers? Energy rating labels will change this by providing highly visible and reliable information on the energy efficiency of different TVs This will allow customers to choose more efficient TVs which: use less energy save on power bills reduce greenhouse gas emissions

8 What are the benefits for customers? LOOK FOR THE STARS!!! More stars = Energy efficiency = Savings on power bills

9 How do we read the labels? Stars The more stars, the better The greater the number of stars, the more efficient the television is compared to other competitive models of the same screen size. kWh per year (kilowatt hours per year) Less is best The smaller the number, the more efficient the television is compared to other competitive models of the same screen size.

10 How do we read the labels? Running costs Kilowatt hours (kWh) per year x 15 cents = Rough cost of running TV per year Greenhouse gas emissions 1 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year = 1 kg of greenhouse gas emissions per year Time to do the maths

11 Running costs (examples) kWh per year x 15 cents = rough cost of running a TV per year For this TV with a 1 star label: 1009 kWh per year x $0.15 = $ per year For this TV with a 4 star label: 416 kWh per year x $0.15 = $62.40 per year

12 Greenhouse Gas Emissions (examples) 1kwh per year =1kg greenhouse gas emissions per year For this TV with a 1 star label: 1009 kWh per year = 1009 kilograms of greenhouse gases per year For this TV with a 4 star label: 416 kWh per year = 416 kilograms of greenhouse gases per year

13 Next comes the 10 star label…

14 10 Star Label A 10 star label has been developed for appliances rated as 7 stars and higher Manufacturers are working hard on bringing more efficient TVs to consumers The crown on the new label will immediately identify these TVs as super efficient

15 Snap Quiz 1.What should you do after 1 October if you unpack a TV for display on the showroom floor and it doesnt have a label? A. A.Nothing, just carry on B. B.Contact the supplier and ask if there is a label for this model and note their response C. C.Notify your supervisor, in the meantime leaving the TV in the storeroom D. D.C then B
