Growing energy costs environmental concerns are a concern for many households. Consumers around the world are turning to energy efficient products to save money and reduce their environmental impact. Manufacturers can tap into this growing demand by incorporating energy efficiency into product design.
Energy efficiency regulations are also on the rise. Some countries have adopted Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)’s ENERGY STAR, a voluntary energy-efficiency labeling program, to reduce energy use and carbon emissions. In the United States and Canada, manufacturers are required to comply with mandatory energy requirements.
UL can help you reduce risks and capture market opportunities through certification and verification testing. We offer the following Energy Efficiency services for consumer and commercial products: Energy Verification Scheme, Energy Efficient Certification, and ENERGY STAR.
UL Energy Efficiency Certification: This program is designed to help you comply with energy requirements outlined by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), California Energy Commission (CEC), and Department of Energy (DOE). Manufacturers can use the UL Energy Efficiency Certification Mark to differentiate their certified products from competitors. Consumers can look up certified products in UL’s Energy Efficiency Product Database.
