British Columbia's energy efficiency strategy has many components, most notably the BC Energy Efficiency Act and Regulations. The Act and Regulations, as updated by the BC Ministry of Energy, Mines, and Petroleum Resources, outline performance standards and labeling requirements for energy-consuming devices. The most recent version of the regulations creates a new energy efficiency standard for all consumer televisions. BC's electric utilities also sponsor efforts to raise awareness of energy efficiency and conservation among consumers. Among the most elaborate of these is British Columbia Hydro "Power Smart" program, which recommends that consumers purchase products bearing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR® label. This program complements the government's LiveSmart BC Efficiency Incentive Program, which also encourages purchase of ENERGY STAR® qualified products. More efficiency measures may develop as the Province continues implementation of its Climate Action Plan.
