Rating the performance of air conditioners is an established tool in Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
Although the rating policies and best practices are different in terms of approach, administration, support
and structure, the goal of promoting energy efficiency and conservation is the same for the countries. This
paper provides the comparative analysis between air conditioner energy rating systems in Singapore,
Malaysia and Australia. Singapore’s National Environment Agency (NEA) has an established rating and
labelling scheme for appliances, including air conditioners, while the Suruhanjaya Tenaga (Energy
Commission) in Malaysia as well as Australia’s Energy Rating also have their respective schemes.
These three countries were chosen for this comparative study as they represent especially Singapore and
Malaysia in term of the economy and trend in energy consumption and profile which are quite similar to
Brunei. Australia meanwhile is chosen for international perspective.
This paper discusses the development and best practices of the schemes in each country and explores
recommendations for Brunei in terms of its rating for air conditioners’ performances and design of the
energy rating label.
