Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/30/2014 -- The Saudi government greatly increased its focus on energy efficiency during the review period, notably forming the Saudi Energy Efficiency Center (SEEC) in 2010. This board developed energy efficiency labels in the latter half of the review period, with these becoming mandatory for all air conditioners imported into Saudi Arabia or produced in the country from September 2013. From January 2014, all air conditioners sold via retail outlets in Saudi Arabia must meanwhile carry these labels. Each star on the label represents 5% energy saving, with a four star label thus offering 20% saving or a six star label indicating 30% energy saving. The label also indicates the year of production, brand, model number, annual energy consumption (Kw/hr), percentage of energy efficiency and cooling capacity. Window air conditioners must have a rating of three stars or above, while split air conditioners initially had a minimum four star rating.
