CLASP and eceee point to an additional 40-70 TWh per annum by 2030 from revisions to existing ecodesign and energy labelling regulations
In a new 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, and to help prioritise efforts on energy related product policy. 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 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 analysis shows that, of the seven product groups, tertiary and household lighting together with household refrigerators continue to offer the greatest potential for energy savings.
