The Ecodesign Directive and Energy Labeling Regulation are two policy instruments used in the EU to drive products toward higher energy efficiency. This presentation will focus, in particular, on label reform in 2021 for five product groups, including refrigerators, dishwashers, washing machines, electronic displays, and lighting.
In the category of electronic displays, furthermore, a deeper analysis will be provided to show how EU standards compare in stringency to those for ENERGY STAR® in the US.
