The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) has partnered with the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA) to roll out a project that seeks to promote the importation and use of energy efficient appliances in the country over a five year period.
The MiDA has already signed an Implementing Entity Agreement with the GSA, which has the mandate to develop the standards in Ghana.
The “Energy Efficiency and Demand Side Management Project” forms part of the Ghana Power Compact II program that required MiDA to develop and put into effect a standards and labels program for about 20 energy consuming products, including the upgrade of products with existing standards and labels.
Among the products categorized into lot one and two, are refrigerators, Air-conditioners, ceiling fans and regulators, lighting, solar panels, batteries, television sets, satellite decoders and TV signal boxes, inverters and electric motors.
The former would assist the latter, under the MiDA-GSA partnership to equip an office facility and build two test laboratories that would help in testing of electrical appliances purchased and used by the public.
The Millennium Development Authority (MiDA) would also get international standards for adoption by the GSA, directly from the International Standards Organizations, such as the international Electro-technical Commission, British Standards Institute, the American National Standards and South African Bureau of Standards among others.
