(MENAFN - Arab News) Traders and retailers of electrical appliances in the Eastern Province showed great interest in the Saudi Center for Energy Efficiency's (SCEE) energy efficiency card that is to be tagged on electrical products.


The traders were in a meeting with specialists from the Saudi Center for Energy Efficiency last week where they were acquainted with the importance of the card and its reliability.
SCEE assistant director Naif Al-Raqqas said the card enjoys international trust and offers e-services through its portal which facilitates access to information.


The move reflects the state's intentions in the public interest and the importance it places on the commitment of suppliers, manufacturers and sellers to introduce minimum energy efficiency on devices, especially on air conditioners.


During the meeting held in the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Eastern Province in cooperation with the SCEE, Al-Raqqas emphasized that the construction sector consumes 80 percent of the electricity generated, 70 percent which goes to air-conditioning. Residential buildings consume almost half of the total electricity generated in the Kingdom, he said.


Al-Raqqas talked about the challenges facing the Kingdom in the power sector including the need to satisfy the demands of the comprehensive infrastructural development taking place and the increasing demand for electricity at a rate of 8 percent annually.
