ENERGY TARGETS

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
Energy targets are voluntary programmes in which governments or utilities persuade, but do not require, manufacturers to lower the energy use or raise the energy efficiency of their products. The product coverage can vary from all products on the market, to a given percentage of the products on the market, to a market-wide average. They can also be applied to manufacturer-based fleet averages or product category averages.
