Mexico consumes approximately 1.5 percent of the world’s primary energy.  Mexico first adopted energy efficiency standards in 1995 under the National Commission for Energy Saving (CONAE). In 2008, the Law for Sustainable Use of Energy transferred authority for energy efficiency standards from CONAE to the just created National Commission for Energy Efficiency (CONUEE). CONUEE has established energy efficiency standards for a total of 16 product categories and five system categories.  CONUEE also regulates a mandatory comparative energy label for domestic appliance products. In 1995 Mexico introduced the Sello FIDE, a voluntary energy efficiency endorsement label awarded by the Fideicomiso para el Ahorro de Energía Eléctrica (FIDE).

Information regarding Mexico's current energy efficiency programs can be found on the CLASP Standards and Labeling (S&L) Database.


Standards & Labeling: Mexico is contributing to international collaboration on solid-state lighting and commercial refrigeration under thge standards and labeling working group.

Procurement:  Mexico is contributing to the development and promotion of analytical tools to enhance public procurement of efficient products.
