The Nature of the Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme

The Voluntary Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme (EELS) is an energy conservation initiative adopted by the Government. Under the scheme, products will carry an energy label that informs customers of the product's energy consumption and efficiency. Buyers can thus take these factors into account when making their selection.

Objective of the Scheme

EELS is an international initiative which has been in existence for many years among developed countries in many shapes and forms. The scheme aims to:

Since its launching in Hong Kong in 1995, the Energy Efficiency Labelling Scheme is carried out on a voluntary basis. At present, the voluntary EELs has covered refrigeration Appliances (Voluntary Scheme), room air conditioners (Voluntary Scheme), washing machines (Voluntary Scheme), non-integrated type compact fluorescent lamps, household electric storage water heaters, electric rice-cookers, television sets, electronic ballasts, LED lamps, induction cookers, microwave ovens, electric clothes dryers, dehumidifiers (Voluntary Scheme), domestic gas instantaneous water heaters, gas cookers, and photocopiers, multifunction devices, printers, LCD monitors, fax machines, hot/cold bottled water dispensers, computers. The scope of EELS has also been extened to cover petrol passenger cars. The Energy Efficiency Office at EMSD is responsible for the implementation of the Scheme.
