The Way Forward for European Energy Efficient Product Policy

The European Union’s policies for energy efficient products make a significant contribution to the 2020 targets for energy-efficiency and greenhouse gas reductions.  Consumers are encouraged by energy labels to purchase more energy-efficient products and industry is directed to dynamic technological innovations by the minimum efficiency and performance requirements for their products.

Today, this framework is at a cross roads due to the need to ensure the energy label remains effective and ecodesign continues to stimulate product innovation and energy savings. How should this policy be taken forward to ensure it continues to deliver reliable information and savings for consumers and a cost-effective regulatory framework and business opportunities for industry?

Topics to be discussed range from the ongoing review of the Directives and the label scales to market surveillance and international cooperation.
