Energy Efficiency Labeling Program

Last updated: 9 June 2020

The Energy Efficiency Labelling Program is a component of the Government  Regulation No. 70/2009 on Energy Conservation.


The program is intended to provide information to consumers about the energy efficiency level of a product, as well as to encourage manufactures to increase the level of energy efficiency of products that they produce. The labelling program currently covers air conditioning (voluntary), compact fluorescent lightbulbs (mandatory), refrigerators (voluntary) and freezers (voluntary). Programs to cover rice cookers, clothes washers, irons, ballasts, televisions, and fans are under development as of early 2015.


The labelling system uses a star-rating system of 4 stars and includes information about the absolute energy efficiency of the product (kWh/year). The star rating shows the product energy efficiency rank relative to similar products in the market, and  is assigned by an independent and accredited test facility that tested the product.


The labelling system is based on SNI 04-6958-2003, which prescribes the size, color and shape of the label, as well as where it should be placed on the appliance.


For air conditioners, the labelling regulation are based on the MEPS (Minimum Energy Performance Standard) with the minimum of one-star or equal to minimum EER 8.53, therefore if the product cannot achieve MEPS standards when tested, then it is deemed to have failed the certification of its energy efficiency. Below are shown the star ratings.

  • 1 star: 8.53 = EER < 9.01
  • 2 stars: 9.01 = EER < 9.96
  • 3 stars: 9.96 = EER < 10.41
  • 4 stars: 10.41 = EER
