Solar water heater industry's first compulsory national standard - "domestic solar hot water system energy efficiency of limited value and energy efficiency rating" (hereinafter referred to as "energy efficiency standards") is currently in the stage of publicity, is expected to be formally implemented before and after National Day, and with match the energy efficiency labeling rules or the fastest at the end of publicity.
In mid-September at the Autumn Fair in Suzhou, the National Standardization Technical Committee Secretary-General Jia Tieying solar energy in industry forums held afterwards revealed keynote speech on "energy efficiency standards" is currently in the stage of publicity, but matched "domestic solar hot water system energy efficiency labeling rules ", the fastest will be the official end of the publicity, and ultimately by the NDRC, AQSIQ issued.
Jia Tieying said that, solar water heater from the current situation, "energy efficiency standards," although the stage at the publicity, but the rules are basically there will be no change. It is understood that "energy efficiency rating" has three levels of indicators, a product that energy-efficient, three for the entry criteria. solar collector The mandatory standard "requires certification through the WTO, but with Chinese characteristics, mandatory standards with international standards is not the same, mainly because the water heater industry is not the same state."
Jia Tieying also revealed that, for now, although no suspense energy efficiency standards, but then the executive will be the test of the industry and regulators serious issue.
The first is the large number of enterprises. According to statistics, there are at least about 3,000 solar energy manufacturers, and enterprises manufacturing solar water heaters at least 2000. Each water heater manufacturer models vary, some as high as hundreds. More importantly, all manufacturers identified various types of methods, based on this directly from the implementation of energy efficiency standards to set up a huge obstacle. Between different models from different manufacturers to unity, the same model to classify the different manufacturers, are "headaches."
Second, derived from the first question, a large number of enterprises and many of the product model, the detection of energy efficiency standards will bring great difficulty rating. , From the current situation, the organization can not appropriate in a short time scale testing team, but even for manufacturers to test the training of personnel, it will be six months or more time is needed, therefore, difficult to detect rating is implementation of energy efficiency standards is another problem.
Third, regulation is difficult. According to "energy efficiency standards" requirement will be around the business sector and the joint law enforcement Quality and Technical Supervision, the manufacturers failed the examination to be fine and even revoke the business license of heavy penalties. But the problem is that a large number of small and medium enterprises in remote regions, some not even registered in the business sector. Meanwhile, on the solar water heater product characteristics, the number of products installed in rural areas, and rural roof, testing will be extremely troublesome.
"To be sure," energy efficiency standards, "the specific implementation, will be a hard long process, during which there will be this or that issue," Jia Tieying said, "but in general, the standard of the point is still very clear, while the whole industry to the healthy and orderly development or beneficial.
Improve product quality, to combat false, run, false, bad behavior, consumer protection and the interests of well-known brands, the domestic solar hot water systems industry healthy and orderly development, which is the standard-setting in mind.
