energy labelling

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

As a result of the development of more and more energy efficient products, and because the difference between A++ and A+++ is less obvious to the consumer, the EU energy labels categories will be gradually adjusted to reintroduce the simpler A to G scale.    In concrete terms, this means that five product groups will be 'rescaled' in the course of 2021

A new EU Regulation on external power supplies aimed at making a range of household appliances more energy efficient - from laptops to electric toothbrushes – enters into force as of 1 April 2020 within the context of EU ecodesign measures. As a result, European consumers will be able to save on their household bills, help reach significant EU-wide energy savings and reduce emissions.

The HARP project has launched a survey to understand what motivates customers to switch to a more efficient heating system: is it the prospect of saving money? reducing CO2 emissions? an improved indoor air quality?   Knowing this will help us develop an online application that will motivate as many individuals as possible to retrofit their heating systems, promoting the benefits and advantages that matter most.

What is your project about? The objective of our project is to support the implementation of the new EU energy label system developed by the European Commission. The most important is to ensure the smooth transition from the old label system to the new one. This will be done by developing various information tools for consumers, professional buyers, retailers and suppliers.    What will be the main challenges for you?

Reducing energy consumption has a direct positive impact in the form of reduced energy bills, however, when selling the asset, at the moment, there is no evidence that buyers would recognise this value. In-depth research shows that although buildings with A or B energy labels are valued higher in some markets, it is not related to the energy performance of the building but rather an indicator of buyers preference for modern and comfortable building.

Concept and Objectives:   Do European consumers pay attention to energy labels when they buy an electric appliance, a car or a house?  What information are they looking for? How important is energy consumption in their decisions?     This is what the CONSEED research project aims to find out through surveys and field trials among households and various economic sectors across Europe.

In 2007, the Effinergie association launched its first label “BBC-Effinergie” for new buildings, requiring a primary energy use of 50kWh/m² per year. The label was very successful and became mandatory for all new buildings under the 2012 Energy Performance regulation (RT2012).    When the RT2012 came into force, Effinergie launched its new label "effinergie +"   The “effinergie +” label requires (among others):
