Introduction energy efficiency standards and labels for cold appliances in Jordan.

Number: pap. n. 2.8



Jordan has been experienced an expansion in the number of electrical appliances. In order to reduce energy consumption in the residential sector, Jordan has to consider implementing minimum energy efficiency standards (MEES) for electrical appliances in the coming years. This study provides background on the benefits of, and steps needed to support introduction of Energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling in Jordan. Furthermore, this study attempts to predict the amount of energy that will be saved in the residential sector by implementing MEES for the cold electrical appliances (refrigerators and freezers). It was found that cold appliances are consuming the highest energy amount about 32.7% of total household electrical energy consumption in Jordan. At worst scenario, it is found that the net saving from 2011-2020 will be approximately 4451.17 GWh by the end of year 2020. The associated CO2 emission reduction during the 10 years is expected to reach 2221 (1000 ton) in the same period. In addition, the reduction of customer bills will reach 320 million JD.
