Energy Efficient Products Incentive Program
Policy measure

According to APEC-ESIS (2010), the so-called Energy Efficient Products Incentive Program was launched in May 2009 to “promote domestic demand for efficient products by subsidising manufacturers of efficient equipment to lower their prices”. The programme specifies that air conditioners are the first product to be subsidized, while passenger vehicles and motors are in second and third.

Implementation

As of June 2010, high efficiency air conditioners of grade 1 received a subsidy of RMB 200 to 250 per set, and high efficiency air conditioners of grade 2 received a subsidy of RMB 150 to 200  per set (APEC-ESIS, 2010).


“In August 2010, the first batch of energy efficiency motors was issued: 996 models of small and middle sized three-phrase asynchronous motor produced by 11 manufacturers, 65 models of rare-earth permanent magnet three-phrase synchro motor produced by 3 manufacturers were in the list. The subsidy for high efficiency motors will be 15-40 RMB/kilowatt and 40-60 RMB/kilowatt based on energy efficiency grade.” (APEC-ESIS, 2010)
