Why UL?

Visibility — Whether you’re applying for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® program or looking to comply with mandatory energy requirements in the U.S. or Canada, or looking to meet energy efficiency targets in other countries our experts will lead you through UL’s energy efficiency certification services and evaluate your products to regulations and specifications for product types established by regulatory bodies. We also place products that meet certification requirements into searchable online product databases owned by the EPA, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), and UL’s own Energy Efficient Product Database.

Market access — Our laboratories provide energy efficiency certification services in Asia, North America and Europe, helping decrease costs and time to market. Some markets, such as California, now require products to be sent to or shipped through the state to be registered with the California Energy Commission; certifying your products for energy efficiency can help your products reach new markets and ease shipping restrictions.

Increase speed to market — Turnaround times for UL’s energy efficiency testing and certification services can be as little as one week.

Bundled services — UL is a comprehensive solution provider, these services are often paired with safety or electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing.

Fair pricing — UL’s Energy Efficiency Certification program doesn’t charge yearly fees, only when certification services are required.


Our services:
