The European Heat Pump Association has celebrated the official publication of the Regulation on the Ecodesign of Lot 1 and 2 with the cutting of the ‘Energy Label Cake’ during the European Heat Pump Summit 2013 in Nürenberg.
“Even though it took nearly seven years to prepare the final version of the regulations, our efforts have been rewarded,” said EHPA secretary general Thomas Nowak.
“A single Energy Label allows for the comparison of different types of heaters and shows heat pumps as the most efficient technology for heating and among the best alternatives for hot water preparation.
“Ecodesign and the Energy Label are necessary steps towards an energy transition in the heating industry. More is to come for a true shift towards the use of renewable energy.”
EHPA hopes that the energy label will contribute to faster unleashing the benefits of the technology in the European marketplace.
