Dishwashers benchmarking report published

The benchmarking report discussing the international comparison of the energy performance of dishwashers in nine countries/regions is now available. It examines variations in the scope and stringency of national minimum performance levels and other policies and shows key differences in product performance between countries over the 1996-2012 period.

The benchmarking report discussing the international comparison of the energy performance of dishwashers in nine countries/regions is now available.

 

This benchmarking report examines:

  • Variations in the scope and stringency of national minimum performance levels required for dishwashers, and a summary of additional national policies seeking to promote dishwasher efficiency;
  • Key differences in product performance between countries over the 1996-2012 period resulting from policies announced and implementation to date;
  • Areas of potential concern, including areas where additional or modified policy intervention may be desirable in the future to improve product energy performance;
  • The potential energy savings that are currently possible, and may be possible in the future if aggressive policy intervention is undertaken.

 

The full report and a summary policy brief can be downloaded from here.
