SHANGHAI, Mar. 12 (SMM) -- The State Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, the State Standardization Administration of China issued a new room air conditioner energy efficiency of the national standard. The new standard of the room air conditioner products provides a new limit value of energy efficiency, evaluating values of energy conservation, energy efficiency level indicators, as well as testing methods, and inspection rules. The new standard improves the energy efficiency of room air conditioner product barriers to entry. Compared with the existing standards, the new one improves limit value of energy efficiency by 23%. The new standard will take effect from Jun 1st 2010. In accordance with the new standard, the present level-2 energy-efficient products will become the minimum requirement.

SMM believes the new national standard of room air conditioner will increase copper consumption in a stand-alone air conditioner, but higher prices will restrict consumption to some extent. The actual impact on copper consumption remains to be seen.
