Energy Efficient Products


Making a smart purchase

A win-win for consumers and the environment

The EU legislation for Energy labels and Ecodesign has been estimated to bring energy savings of approximately 230 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe) by 2030. For consumers, this means an average saving of up to €290 per year on their household energy bills. 

Ecodesign sets common EU wide minimum standards to eliminate the least performing products from the market, while the Energy Labels provide a clear and simple indication of the energy efficiency and other key features of products at the point of purchase. This makes it easier for consumers to save money on their household energy bills and contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions across the EU.

Public Procurement

Public buyers, as consumers, are concerned by the same interest in energy-efficiency as it contributes to reduce the life-cycle cost of a product. In fact, in accordance with the Energy Efficiency Directive public procurers procurers must take into account Ecodesign and Energy Labelling if they are procuring products that are covered by such requirements. Specifically for products with energy labels, EPREL can be a powerful tool for procurers to find the best deals and meet the requirements to purchase efficient products.
