Determination of energy savings in projects proposed new field of work

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on a new work item proposal called the 'General technical rules for determination of energy savings in renovation projects, industrial enterprises and regions'. The national member body of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in China has proposed this new field of work to ISO.

The proposed Standard is intended to specify the general technical rules for measurement, calculation, and verification of energy savings applicable in energy efficient renovation projects on existing or new building facilities, industrial utilities and processes. It will also specify the general technical rules for measurement, calculation, and verification of energy savings of industrial enterprises. Finally, it is also intended to determine the energy savings of regions which implement energy efficient policies and measures, such as mandatory standards, tax rebates, subsidy programmes, and propagation programmes.

To receive a copy of the proposal, for more information, or to submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email International Manager Karen Batt at isoadmin@standards.co.nz. Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal. Please provide your comments by Friday 30 July 2010.
