  1. Ministry of EconomySeminar, Vilnius, 6 November 2014 Ecodesign & Energy Labelling Overview and review Ewout Deurwaarder European Commission Directorate General for Energy Unit C3, Energy efficiency Unit C3, Energy efficiency

  2. 1. State of Play2. Review of the Directives + future work plan3. Information on specific products

  3. How do we achieve energy efficiency in product design? Combinedeffect ensures a dynamic improvement of the market: Efficientproducts Supply side Demand side Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU + Labelling of Tyres (Regulation 1222/2009) + Energy Star (Regulation 106/2008) Both Directives are «frameworks» defining the «rules» for setting product-specific requirements through Regulations.

  4. Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC) • Allows to set requirements for environmental performance of energy-related products • Main focus has been on energy in the use-phase • Can address other environmental parameters and life-cycle phases • Requirements have to be met in order to place a product on the market • Requirements are harmonised across the EU

  5. Energy Labelling Directive (2010/30/EU) Allows to specify an energy label for energy-related products The label shows energyefficiency in the use phase Use of other essential resources/ information during use alsoshown Manufacturers have to supply the label; dealers have to show it

  6. 24 ecodesign regulations (+4 amendments) Product-specificmeasures • 1275/2008 Electric power consumption standby and off mode • 107/2009 Simple set-top boxes • 244+859/2009 Non-directional household lamps • 245/2009 Fluorescent lamps for high intensity discharge lamps • +347/2010 • 278/2009 External power supplies • 640/2009 + 4/2014 Electric motors • 641/2009 + 622/2012 Circulators • 642/2009 Televisions • 65/2014 Domestic ovens, hobs and range hoods • 643/2009 Household refrigerating appliances • 1015/2010 Household washing machines • 1016/2010 Household dishwashers • 327/2011 Industrial fans • 206/2012 Airco and comfort fans • 547/2012 Water pumps • 932/2012 Household tumble driers 1194/2012 Directional lamps • 617/2013 Computers and servers • 666/2013 Vacuum cleaners • 801/2013 Networked standby • 813/2013 Spaceheaters • 814/2013 Water heaters & storage tanks • 66/2014 Domestic ovens, hobs and range hoods • 548/2014 Power transformers • ../.. Ventilation products

  7. On-goingwork

  8. Process fordeveloping product-specific regulations

  9. Step 1-7

  10. Step 8-10

  11. Entry into force and application Regulations enter into force 20 days after publication in the Official Journal of EU, but .. .. requirements only become applicable from the date(s) specified in the regulation Either 'Common commencement dates' (1 January or 1 July) or exactly X years after entry into force First requirements usually (about) 1 or 2 years after publication

  12. Implementation of Regulations Commission provides: • References to transitional or final measurement standards (published in the Official Journal of the EU) • Guidelines (for selected products) • Energy label templates • Energy label generator (new) • Consumer's guides (new) http://ec.europa.eu/energy/efficiency/labelling/household_en.htm

  13. Enforcement Market surveillance is the role of national authorities, it includes: • Inspecting technical documentation • Product testing • Inspection of labels in shops and on the internet • Random and/or risk based sampling • Cooperation with other market surveillance authorities Market surveillance regulation 765/2008 • Applies to all Union harmonisation legislation on products • Applies also to Ecodesign, Energy Labelling and Tyre Labelling • New proposal under negotiation in European Parliament and Council

  14. Member States' cooperation on enforcement Administrative Cooperation (ADCO): • Discuss common challenges • Agree on interpretation questions relevant to surveillance EU-funded projects: • Joint actions (e.g. testing) • Common procedures, exchange best practices

  15. Voluntary agreements Ecodesign Directive provides for self-regulation as alternative, under certain conditions Two agreements have beenendorsed by the Commission(imaging equipment;complex set-top boxes) Thus, no ecodesign regulationsHowever, regulation onstand-by & off-mode still applies

  16. Provisions for voluntary agreements • Ecodesign Directive, ANNEX VIII • Self-regulation • (referred to in Article 17) Requirements: self-regulatory initiatives must comply with all provisions of the Treaty (in particular internal market and competition rules), international engagements of the Community and the following non-exhaustive list of indicative criteria: • 1. Openness of participation • 2. Added value • 3. Representativeness • 4. Quantified and staged objectives • 5. Involvement of civil society • 6. Monitoring and reporting • 7. Cost-effectiveness of administering a self-regulatory initiative • 8. Sustainability • 9. Incentive compatibility (Policy consistency )

  17. Guidelines for voluntary agreements General criteria ensuring coherence Under preparation, draft presented to the Ecodesign Consultation Forum June 2014. Would address: • Process transparency and information to the public • Level of ambition; market share covered • Compliance checks, auditing

  18. 1. State of Play2. Review of the Directives + future work plan3. Information on specific products

  19. Timeline Review Energy Labelling & Ecodesign • May 2013- June 2014 evaluation study • Sept – Nov 2013 public consultation • Sept 2013 – Oct 2014 consumer labelling study • 19 Feb 2014 label layout meeting • 20-21 Feb 2014 international conference • 11 June 2014 Consultation Forum • …….. • 1st quarter 2015 Commission report + any proposal

  20. Review: Results Achieved Expected yearly savings by 2020

  21. Major challenges Energy label • Rescaling Communication Scope • Environmental aspects • Products versus systems • Internet of Things • Smart appliances Process • Data & Resources Compliance/Market surveillance

  22. Scope • Beyond energy-related products? • Further environmental aspects?

  23. Scope • Products versus systems Package label for heating systems

  24. Scope • Internet of Things • Stand-by power Source: Alan Meier

  25. Scope • Smart appliances/demand response

  26. Highlights of the evaluation study Substantial, cost-effective energy savings, but not capturing full potential • Revise energy label • Address market surveillance • Increase support for rule-making process Mandatory product registration would help market surveillance and the rule-making process

  27. Highlights of the consumer study • Online testing of label framing elements

  28. Highlights of the consumer study • Green to red label scales are understood

  29. Highlights of the consumer study • Potential new elements are not well-understood

  30. Highlights of the consumer study • Purchasing behaviour best for alphabetic scale Share of respondents Price premium for the more energy efficient product

  31. 2nd phase consumer study Testing in brick-and-mortar shops

  32. Communication

  33. Ecodesign/Labelling work plan 2015-2017 Study on-going assessing potential energy and other environmental impact savings: http://www.ecodesign-wp3.eu/ 108 products studied; in-depth assessment of 16 products Study final in January 2015 Commission to decide on work plan. Key question how much effort into revisions vs. new products

  38. Vacuum cleaners Label and ecodesign apply since Sept 2014 (Regulations 665 & 666/2013)

  39. Vacuum cleaners Energy efficiency takes into account both the power input and the performance in picking up dust Commission published in August/September: • References to standards in the Official Journal EU • Guidelines Commission will review the durability requirements before they start to apply Information requirements for the specific type of fans used in vacuum cleaners have been removed from the fans regulation

  40. (industrial) Fans Regulation 327/2011 (electric power 125 W-500 kW) Requirements for Jan 2013 and Jan 2015 Review by April 2015 • feasibility of reducing the number of defined fan types • reduce number of exemptions, including allowances for dual use fans Study on-going; 1st stakeholder meeting Oct 2014

  41. Ventilation Ecodesign & labelling adopted July 2014 Labelling still under scrutiny by Parliament and Council Labelling only for residential ventilation (max. flow rate 250 m³/h; or 1000 m³/h and declared as exclusively residential) Ecodesign requirements different for residential and non-residential Apply from Jan 2016

  42.
