ISLAMABAD: Minister for Science and Technology Mir Changez Khan Jamali on Wednesday informed the parliament’s upper house that a new technology has been adopted to produce energy-efficient appliances for power conservation.
During the Senate’s question-hour session, he said the energy-efficient technology was currently being used in the fan industry. Fans produced in Pakistan are highly demanded in global markets, which is reflective of their exports to 30 countries, he added.
He said Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority had fixed energy efficiency standards for the production of saver bulbs, inductions motors, geysers and ovens.
Standards had also been framed for manufacturing of washings machines, room air-conditioners and electric irons under the voluntary certification scheme, the minister added.
