In this discussion paper, analysis by CLASP has identified an additional 40-70 TWh per annum by 2030 from eleven existing ecodesign and energy labelling regulations covering seven product groups. All eleven regulations are scheduled for review between now and the end of 2014.

The discussion paper is intended, with the support of eceee, as a contribution to the evidence base for the reviews of – and to help prioritise efforts on – energy related product policy in the EU. CLASP and eceee hope that the paper will prove of value to all stakeholders in the process and of interest to the wider energy efficiency community.

The paper estimates the potential additional energy savings from revisions to the EU’s ecodesign and energy labelling regulations on: household refrigerators, external power supplies, household washing machines, household dishwashers, tertiary lighting, household lighting and simple set-top boxes. Televisions are not included as the review process of existing regulations on televisions is already underway.

The Commission has recently set out ambitious plans for energy related product policy for the period 2012-2014. CLASP and eceee hope that the discussion paper will be of use to the Commission, Member States and stakeholders in charting the way forward.

In particular, we hope that the analysis will help:

  1. Reduce the amount of time taken for any subsequent analysis in support of the reviews;
  2. Identify the most important product groups in energy saving terms;
  3. Identify the amount of energy that can be saved from revisions in addition to what is delivered by the regulations as they are;
  4. Prioritise the overall workload.

Eceee runs an ecodesign portal with information on the ecodesign process.
