EU Commission adopted energy labelling criteria for space heaters

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional

Abstract

Energy Labelling Directive (ELD) has recently been adopted in European Union to improve the energy efficiency of appliances sold on the market. Energy labels are aimed to assist consumers in choosing products which save energy. In this article the new Delegated Regulation published on 6 September 2013 in Commission's Official Journal is discussed. The aim of this new Regulation is to introduce a harmonised scheme for labelling products according to their energy efficiency and energy consumption and providing standard product information for consumers. This Regulation sets EU energy labels for stand-alone heaters and for packages of heaters combined with further heating products. It introduces the widely known A-G scale to cover the various types of conventional boilers. Additionally, the dynamic top classes A+, A++ and A+++ are intended to promote the use of cogeneration and renewable energy sources.
