As part of EU energy strategy, targets have been set for energy efficiency for 2020 and 2030 in addition to those for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and transitioning to renewables. The Ecodesign Directive and Energy Labeling Regulation are two policy instruments used in the EU to drive products toward higher energy efficiency. Out of fifteen product categories requiring energy labels, five product groups are undergoing labeling reform. The primary change relates to an aggressive re-scaling of energy efficiency classes, or grades, in order to enable consumers to make better-informed decisions and purchase more efficient products.
For each of these five product groups, including refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, electronic displays, and lighting, the presentation will cover upcoming changes as well as definitions and formulae used to determine respective energy efficiency classes. In the category of electronic displays, furthermore, a deeper analysis will be provided to show how EU standards compare in stringency to those for ENERGY STAR® in the US.
