atar Gen­eral Or­ga­ni­za­tion for Stan­dards and Metrol­ogy (QS) has com­pleted the de­sign of op­tional “Gold and Sil­ver” Cards for new en­ergy-sav­ing air con­di­tion­ers prior to its for­mal in­au­gu­ra­tion next month.

As­sis­tant Un­der­sec­re­tary of the Min­istry of Mu­nic­i­pal­ity and En­vi­ron­ment, Dr Mo­hammed bin Saif Al Kuwari, said that the State of Qatar sought to in­tro­duce the new sys­tem as a manda­tory mea­sure in its en­ergy-ef­fi­ciency project in the fu­ture, sim­i­lar to what other de­vel­oped coun­tries have adopted, such as South Korea and Ja­pan. QS will grant com­pa­nies and man­u­fac­tur­ers of 7 and 8-star ACs a cer­tifi­cate of ap­pre­ci­a­tion in­di­cat­ing the num­ber of stars they achieved, in a step to fur­ther en­cour­age com­pa­nies to im­port those highly en­ergy-ef­fi­cient mod­els, he said in a press state­ment.
