Utilizing the experiences from other countries those who have already implemented, this policy measure, this project has been carried out by conducting consumers’ research survey. This survey was conducted in two phases in Klang valley area (i.e. Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya) to get consumers opinions for the purpose of developing energy guide label. In the first phase of survey, 20 labels from all over the world were selected and placed before consumers with questionnaire to reach a narrow band using their opinions. 3 labels are selected from these 20 labels in this first phase survey. In the second phase survey, consumers’ responses of different questions have been analyzed and presented in this paper in details based on consumer’s responses using the 3 labels selected in first phase survey. From the second phase survey, 2 labels have been finalized taking into account of consumers’ views. The two final proposed labels were designed and presented in this paper using consumers’ response outcome.
