Germany's Blue Angel ecolabelling scheme has launched a label for highly insulated hot water tanks, among labels for several other products of household heat production. Consumers who buy hot water tanks meeting the standard could reduce their energy costs for heating water by up to 10%, according to the German environment ministry. The labelling criteria also specify that manufacturers accept and recycle used tanks.
