Rising global temperatures pose a significant threat to Pakistan, with projections indicating an alarming increase of 3°C to 5°C by the end of the century under a central emissions scenario, and even higher rises of 4°C to 6°C for higher emissions scenarios (ADB, 2021). As Punjab experiences scorching heat waves, the demand for air conditioning is surging, exacerbating energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In response, the Punjab Energy Efficiency and Conservation Agency (PEECA) has emerged as a pivotal player in Pakistan’s efforts to combat climate change and reduce energy consumption. In wake of this, PEECA is introducing an innovative Energy Endorsement Label, designed to revolutionize consumer choices, promote energy efficiency, and pave the way for a sustainable future.

The Punjab Energy Endorsement Label:
At the core of this initiative, lies the importance of consumer awareness and choice. To empower consumers and transform market dynamics, PEECA is developing the Energy Endorsement Label. This innovative labelling system provides standardized and easily recognizable most energy-efficient air conditioners, motors, and fans. Consumers can make informed decisions to acquire the energy performance, annual energy consumption, and cost savings associated with each appliance by identifying the appliances marked by the endorsement label. The Energy Endorsement Label serves as a powerful tool, guiding consumers towards energy-conscious options and incentivizing manufacturers to produce more energy-efficient appliances.
