Publication Information

This report is prepared by the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) for the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEEP) partnership. The objective of this study is to analyse the characteristics of major appliance and lighting products and markets in Papua New Guinea (PNG), in order to inform and support decision making on the most suitable Standards & Labelling (S&L) strategy for PNG. The electrical appliance information presented in this section is based on data provided by the PNG National Statistical Office and covers the most common electrical appliances in the country. This report provides analysis on the country of origin of electrical appliances based on import value and import unit data. Using number of units imported is a more accurate way of determining the market share of each country as the import value share is influenced by exchange rates and equipment costs, i.e. the average electrical equipment import value from Australia/New Zealand and Europe are typically higher than that of the People’s Republic of China (China).
