According to the data provided by the United Nations Environment Programme, lighting products nearly account for 20% of global energy consumption, 6% of CO2 emission in the world. Adopting more energy-efficient lighting technologies to replace inefficient lighting technologies can not only reduce carbon emissions, but also can help reduce the growth of overall energy demand.
In recent years, with excellent Germany technology and globalized operation platform, TÜV SÜD has helped local enterprises to obtain energy efficiency certification in global main markets such as EU. It laboratories not only obtain the approval of Dakks, ZLS, NVLAP, JQA laboratories, but also are ENERGY STAR certification bureau designated by EPA, which can provide customers with comprehensive energy efficiency certification service of lighting products such as ENERGY STAR、MEPS、ERP、LM-80、LM-79.
EU CE-ERP certification
EU eco-label plan is a voluntary product certification plan recognized within EU. This plan aims to assist consumers to achieve products with highest efficiency (it generally refers to top 20% of products of a certain type) Eco-label plan provides manufacture certification of 28 different product types, among which at present more than 17000 types of EU eco-label products have been listed.
EU ENEC certification
ENEC+ is a certification mark that is developed on the basis of ENEC. ENEC has a basis of more than 20 years’ quality and safety certification, while ENEC+ further supplement this standard. Its products cover LED and traditional lamps. This certification is expected to become unique performance standard in the whole Europe to replace tangled performance labels of all countries.
America – Energy Star certification
Energy Star is an energy saving plan that is led by American government and that mainly aims at consumer electronic products. The plan of Energy Star was launched by EPA and DOE in 1992 with the purpose of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission. Then this plan was adopted by Australia, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand and European Union. This plan is voluntary. The standard of Energy Star saves 20% to 30% than USA federal standard.
Australia – MEPS certification
MEPS refers to Minimum Energy Performance Standards of Australia. In the mid 1970s, two biggest states: NSW and Victoria in Australia jointly put forward the suggestion of implementing energy label system, but mandatory label system has been implemented since 1986. In 1992, 5 states and 1 manor agreed to implement mandatory label system; in 2000, the system was implemented in the whole nation.
California – CEC certification
CEC certification is the appliance efficiency regulation that is legally implemented on December 30, 2005 in America California Energy Commission. The implementation of this regulation aims to improve efficiency of electrical appliances, save energy and reduce gas emission and greenhouse effect
