The Standards Organisation of Nigeria says Nigeria will save an estimated N500 billion by implementing the Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS).

The Director General of the agency, Dr Ifeanyi Okeke, stated this yesterday in Abuja at an awareness workshop on Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) with the theme ‘Promoting energy efficiency and non-toxic lighting through MEPPS compliance’.

The director general, who was represented by the Director, Laboratory Services of SON, Adewunmi Richards, noted that “Nigeria will save about  387 megawatts of power which is estimated at about half a billion dollars by implementing the MEPS as the world gradually shifts to clean energy.

Speaking further, he noted that “MEPS are regulations that set a minimum level of energy efficiency that a product must meet to be sold in the market. These standards are crucial in our efforts to reduce energy consumption, lower greenhouse gas emissions, and promote a sustainable future.

“The standards apply to a wide range of products, from appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and televisions, to vehicles and building materials.

“By setting minimum energy efficiency requirements for these products, governments ensure that only energy-efficient options are available in the market,” the DG further explained

Earlier in her remarks, Dr Leslie Adogame,  Executive Director at Sustainable Research and Action for Environmental Development (SRADev)  Nigeria said the NGO is willing to partner with the SON regulation of the lighting products containing mercury in line with the clean energy drive of the federal government.
