Home appliance industry happy with Canada’s Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016 – Amendment 13
January 6, 2017 - The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) says it applauds the publication of the new Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016 – Amendment 13, by Natural Resources Canada, as it will "increase energy performance for many household appliances", including refrigerators and freezers, clothes washers and dryers, dishwashers and room air-conditioners.
Amendment 13 will align the Canadian appliance regulations with the United States’ energy conservation standards by 2020, AHAM notes, and Canadian residents will save about $1.8 billion in energy costs by 2030.
“Regulatory cooperation between the United States and Canada is a top priority for AHAM members. It not only provides manufacturers with the ability to plan but it also gives Canadian consumers access to the most efficient appliances available today,” stated Bruce Rebel, vice-president and general manager of AHAM Canada.
AHAM is a not-for-profit trade association representing manufacturers of major and portable home appliances, floor care appliances and suppliers to the industry with headquarters in Washington, DC and an office in Ottawa, Ont.
