Energy Efficiency Description:

The existing labelling system of energy related appliances was extended (split of label A into 3 categories) in the review of Directive 2003/66/EC.

Among the about 15 Delegated Regulations foreseen as implementing measures of Directive 2010/30/EU, 12 are already published : on refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, air-conditioning, tumble dryers, lamps, luminaires & lightbulbs (2012), televisions, vacuum cleaners, space and water heaters, ovens, range hoods and residential ventilation.

The developments are in synergy with Framework Directive 2009/125/EC on "Ecodesign" and with its related implementation measures (regulations and voluntary agreements).
