This report is prepared by International Institute for Energy Conservation - Asia (IIEC Asia) for the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP). The main objective of this technical analysis was to assess the characteristics of major appliance and lighting products and markets in 17 Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs), in order to support government decision-making on the most suitable Standards & Labelling (S&L) strategy for each PICT. The analysis was undertaken to support the Pacific Appliance Labelling and Standards (PALS) Programme that is being led by the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC). One objective in S&L programme design is to allow for energy efficient appliances to enter the market at an affordable price, irrespective of country of origin or manufacture. Another is to build on public awareness and familiarity with labels that may already be visible in the market.
