In 2021, Inmetro updated the list of products registered for sale, including equipment with higher standards of Energy Efficiency (EE). The retailers have also adapted their websites to include EE as a criterion for the purchase of air conditioners. These changes not only serve as progress, but also offer a positive signal for the industry to change its manufacturing conditions. This was the result of the work carried out by the Kigali Project, of iCS and partners, which is a success that has opened up the space for the Kigali Network to progress in the updating of refrigerator standards. It is expected that there will be savings of around 32 billion reais in the electricity bills of Brazilians up to 2035 during the process of updating the Brazilian Labeling Program (PBE) for refrigerators sold in Brazil.
