Choose home appliances to look at "energy consumption" low-carbon into a new trend of electric appliance consumption

  Have you noticed the clearly marked energy consumption signs on your home appliances?

Today's consumers are paying more and more attention to environmental protection and low carbon. In terms of household appliance consumption, the proportion of the turnover of commodities with primary and secondary energy consumption is increasing year by year.

  Home appliance industry to "green low-carbon" innovation

  my country is a strong country in the manufacture and consumption of household appliances, and household appliances are one of the main sources of energy consumption for residents.

What is overlooked by many people is that high energy consumption and high pollution are common problems of "old home appliances".

Recently, the China Household Electrical Appliances Association released the "Proposal on Carrying out the "Renewing the Old" Activities for Home Appliances in the 6.18 Promotional Season, responding to the national green home appliance policy, advocating channels, home appliance brand manufacturers, etc. to jointly promote the trade-in of old home appliances and strengthen consumers. Safe use of home appliances and awareness of energy conservation and environmental protection, and timely replacement of "extended service" old home appliances.

  According to the "2022 China Electric Appliance Service Industry Trend Insight Report" released by JD.com during 618 this year, low-carbon electric appliance services have become a new trend in electric appliance consumption.

With the continuous development of my country's economy in recent years, as an important part of the social economy, the role of electrical appliance enterprises in the society has begun to change, not only to be responsible for their own profits, but also to achieve a dynamic balance between social responsibility and environmental responsibility. Social and ecological sustainability.

Especially in the past two years, the double carbon goal has been gradually advanced, and the green and low carbonization of the electrical service industry has become the direction of industry innovation and upgrading.

  The turnover of primary and secondary energy consumption commodities has increased year by year

  Similarly, consumers under the influence of the concept of green consumption have begun to take the low energy consumption of electrical appliances as a key consideration in the selection process.

"How much electricity does the air conditioner consume a day?" "Which of the two brands of refrigerators is more energy-efficient and worth buying?" In the comments section of home appliance evaluation bloggers, in addition to product functions, many consumers have raised concerns about energy consumption. paid attention.

  According to data from JD.com, the proportion of the turnover of products with primary and secondary energy consumption in household appliances such as air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines, and TVs has increased year by year.

In 2021, the turnover of energy-efficient appliances above grade 2 will account for more than 65%, of which the turnover of refrigerators and washing machines will account for more than 85%, and the turnover of air-conditioning products will account for more than 70%.

In the past year, only the first-class energy-efficient air conditioners, refrigerators, and TVs were sold in three categories, saving electricity every year and reducing carbon emissions by nearly 2 million tons.

In this way, consumers can save daily electricity and energy costs by using these environmentally friendly appliances, and at the same time practice a green and low-carbon lifestyle.

  In addition to the consideration of environmental protection and low-carbon factors in the selection of electrical appliances, consumers also prefer to put environmental protection actions into sustainable consumption patterns, reduce replacement costs through trade-in services, and promote the effective recycling of available resources in old machines. , forming a green closed loop from consumers to products and then to services, realizing a virtuous circle of symbiotic development of electrical services and the environment.

In the first quarter of 2022, the turnover of mobile communications, computer digital and home appliances on JD.com increased by more than 6 times year-on-year; among them, the turnover of old-for-new home appliances increased by 3.6 times year-on-year, and the order volume increased by 4.5 times year-on-year.

  Local version of consumer coupons to subsidize energy-saving products

  It is worth noting that in recent years, the national level has relied on the three major policies of home appliances to the countryside, trade-in, and energy saving and benefiting the people, which has stimulated the rapid growth of domestic demand in the market and led the industry to upgrade and transform to low energy consumption and high energy efficiency.

At the same time, through policy guidance, people are encouraged to choose green appliances.

On April 25 this year, the General Office of the State Council issued the "Opinions on Further Unleashing Consumption Potential and Promoting Continued Recovery of Consumption", proposing to encourage new energy vehicles and green smart home appliances to go to the countryside in areas where conditions permit.

  Prior to this, Beijing, Tianjin, Shenzhen, Ningbo and many other places have launched local versions of subsidy policies, which all echo the "green intelligence" proposed at the national level.

For example, in April, Beijing issued green energy-saving coupons to consumers in Beijing to encourage consumers to purchase and use green energy-saving products, and household electrical appliances can only be used if they have reached the energy efficiency of Level 2 or above.
