Mulls Energy Efficiency Labels for TVs

The European Commission is proposing the introduction of energy efficiency labels for TVs, which typically account for around 10% of a household’s electricity use. The Commission wants to introduce the A to G scale for TVs and the new A+, A++ and A+++ classes for appliances that already have to carry an energy efficiency label.

The European Commission is proposing the introduction of energy efficiency labels for TVs, which typically account for around 10% of a household’s electricity use.

The Commission
wants to introduce the A to G scale for TVs and the new A+, A++ and A+++
classes for appliances that already have to carry an energy efficiency label.

If manufacturers
respond quickly to the directive and improve the performance of TVs, the Commission
says it will consider introducing an A+ category for TVs that are 30% more
efficient than the current best performers in 2014.


Taken
collectively, the appliances covered by the new labelling proposal typically
account for around 30% of a household’s electricity usage.

“Energy labels
move the market towards highly energy efficient products, which is a major
contribution to reaching Europe’s energy efficiency, competitiveness and
climate change goals,” says Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger. “At the same
time, they save money for consumers.”

The proposals will
now have to be approved by EU member states and the European Parliament, before
coming into force at the end of 2011 at the earliest.
