Abstract

Improvement in standards of living in Malaysia makes people using more modern electrical appliances at home. Electrical appliances for residential building consume a significant amount of electricity in the domestic sector. Efficiency improvement of these appliances will give a significant impact on future energy consumption for this country. Standards and Labelling (S&L) has been implemented around the world and energy efficiency (EE) can be considered as an important strategy to reduce the energy consumption. Malaysia has adopted the minimum energy performance standard (MEPS) approach to implement S&L programs. South Korea is one of the developed countries that also implement MEPS. This paper discussed the implementation of MEPS as EE standards and labels in Malaysia and South Korea. The comparison on testing procedure and energy efficiency label between these two countries also has been discussed. Therefore, some recommendations to improve S&L in Malaysia also provided regarding the success of its implementation in South Korea. The methods to calculate and identify EE standards and labels that provide some useful information for identifying energy efficient products have been reviewed between these countries. The implementing of EE standards and labels will save a huge of energy, as well as beneficial to the environment. Therefore, it will encourage consumers to use the energy efficient electrical appliances
