Energy efficiency labelling

15 July 2015

On 15 July 2015, the European Commission published a draft energy efficiency labelling regulation that is meant to replace the current Directive 2010/30/EU.
In its first reading position, the Council introduced stricter provisions regarding the display of energy efficiency information in advertisements. Namely, manufacturers and retailers would be asked to display not only the energy efficiency class of the products, but also the range of energy classes on the label and the energy consumption in any advertisement.
egta and other affected industry association are actively lobbying Members of the European Parliament to ensure a fair and reasonable outcome for TV and radio sales houses by reducing the proposed stricter provisions.
Next steps: the European Parliament will discuss the European Commission’s proposal in the coming weeks. In this process, egta will continue to raise awareness on the need to avoid unnecessary burden on media companies.
