Test Procedures, Measurements and Standards for Domestic Washing Machines

Title of Document Test Procedures, Measurements and Standards for Domestic Washing Machines
Abstract The specific electricity and water consumption per washing capacity (kg) of clothes washers has already decreased during the recent years due to technical progress and energy efficiency policy schemes implemented in many world regions. These schemes also include mandatory Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and mandatory energy labels in a growing number of countries. Much more can be achieved because the MEPS do not yet reflect the best technically and economically feasible performance. Washing machines with much better efficiency are available. Energy savings of 12 to 55 % and water savings of 26 to 73 % are possible, compared to the most popular conventional appliances. Also, the most efficient appliances worldwide are not yet available in all markets. Adequate policies based on mandatory comparative labelling schemes can help to close this efficiency gap. Policy should also support research and development. This can be done both through direct financial support for research and development as well as through demand-pull strategies, such as technology procurement and super-efficient appliance award competitions.
