Since 1995, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department (EMSD) has been operating a voluntary energy efficiency labelling scheme (the VEELS) for household electrical/gas appliances and office equipment. The VEELS aims to promote energy saving by informing customers of the energy efficiency performance of the products. The VEELS also intends to encourage product suppliers to make available more energy-efficient products to meet customer demand. There are two types of labels under the VEELS, namely the "Grading Type" and the "Recognition Type" energy labels. The VEELS currently covers 22 types of household electrical/gas appliances and office equipment.
