Seven countries in Central America and the Dominican Republic are currently finalizing the adoption of technical regulations to establish minimum energy-efficiency standards and labelling for lighting products, motors, refrigerators and air conditioners. The current status and next steps to finalize these technical regulations were presented at this event.
The current harmonizing standard process in the region is “a successful step towards promoting energy efficiency in the countries, the competiveness of the industry, and complying with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change,” said Pablo Moreno, president of the National Chamber of Electrical Manufacturers of Mexico, partner of the SE4ALL/U4E initiative.
