ENERGY EFFICIENCY LABELING

 

Regulatory requirements and environmentally conscious consumers are increasing the demand for more energy efficient products. In certain countries, certain products must comply with energy efficiency requirements and be labeled accordingly in order to be sold in those markets. Additionally, products with an energy efficiency label are more accepted and preferred over their less efficient counterparts as consumers look for more energy efficient products to reduce energy consumption and save costs.

At STC, we provide energy efficiency evaluation, testing and certification for a wide range of electrical products in accordance to relevant labeling regulations and voluntary labeling standards.
