Commercial/industrial air conditioners >65kW; Air conditioning machines, comprising a motor-driven fan and elements for changing the temperature and humidity, including those machines in which the humidity cannot be separately regulated (HS 8415); Ventilators. Fans. Air-conditioners (ICS 23.120)
Greenhouse and Energy Minimum Standards (Air Conditioners above 65kW) Determination 2019 (10 page(s), in English)
Proposed changes to the energy efficiency regulations for air conditioners to be covered by the instrument are set out below.
Commercial/industrial air conditioners
Introduce a MEPS of 2.9 for air conditioners with a capacity of >65 kW based on their Annual Energy Efficiency Ratio (AEER) and Annual Coefficient of Performance (ACOP).
Note: MEPS for these products currently apply (at levels between 2.6 and 2.8) under the National Construction Code (NCC). Australia will include these MEPS (at the higher level of 2.9 shown above) under the Greenhouse Energy Minimum Standards (GEMS) Act 2012.
