This cost benefit analysis found that whilst hot water circulators have the potential to save water, they cannot be rated for water efficiency because all hot water circulators will provide similar levels of water savings when assessed under...
This cost benefit analysis found that whilst domestic irrigation controllers have the potential to save water, these savings are largely dependent on the user being educated on the appropriate use of the type or model of controllers that are...
This report provides technical information about the possible inclusion of evaporative air conditioners in the WELS scheme. It contains information on water consumption for these products across Australia.
This study explores possible inclusion of more water-efficient toilets into the WELS scheme. The report does not cover vacuum and dry toilets.
This report investigates the feasibility of including hot water circulators in the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme and/or other suitable programs.
This consultation Regulation Impact Statement assesses the regulatory impacts, including the costs and benefits of setting minimum water efficiency standards for clothes washers and dishwashers to improve the water efficiency of these products. It...
This report examines the cost effectiveness of WELS.
This report provides useful background information that will assist in the preparation of a cost benefit analysis and regulation impact statement on the potential inclusion of this product into the WELS scheme.
This Regulation Impact Statement analyses costs and benefits of introducing minimum water efficiency standards (WES) for clothes washing machines, minimum WES for dishwashers, as well as extending the WELS scheme to the water used in the drying...
