Indonesia Market Study and Policy Analysis for Refrigerators
CLASP, Environmental Design Solutions, Market Xcel, and ASHA conducted a comprehensive study of domestic refrigerators in Indonesia. The goal of the study was to characterize the market; inform the development of appropriate and robust refrigerator testing, standards, and labeling requirements; and assess the potential impacts of these energy efficiency policies.
The team contacted over 8 manufacturers and importers, received data and inputs from the trade association GABEL and six major manufacturers responsible for 48% of the market, and visited 13 retail stores around Jakarta. The team also collected government data, reviewed past studies, reviewed manufacturers’ websites, and incorporated the findings of CLASP’s 5000-household, nationwide residential end-use survey. Finally, the team developed policy recommendations and analyzed them using CLASP’s Policy Analysis Modeling System.
