Commission approves energy label for heaters

The College of Commissioners has provided approval of the Energy label for heaters.

As of 2015, consumers will be able to choose the most efficient heater for their home, based on a single energy label. This label is expected to foster the uptake of renewable heating solutions, and in particular heat pumps.

The news has been welcomed by EHPA/EPEE.

EHPA secretary general Thomas Nowak and Andrea Voigt, from EPEE, commented: “With the adoption of the energy label for heaters, the European Commission is sending a very positive and strong signal to citizens and industry in Europe, setting a major milestone towards the achievement of its EU 2020 targets, in particular improving energy efficiency and the use of renewables.”

The energy label will indirectly support the development of more energy efficient products and thus contribute to maintaining Europe as a technology leader in this segment. The expected resulting effect for heat pump technology in the market place will secure and create jobs and industrial investment in Europe.
