Ecodesign and energy labelling are saving consumers money, report says



The report presents the energy savings expected by 2020 and 2030 as a result of EU consumers switching to energy efficient products, as well as the resultant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.

The findings:

  • By 2020, use of energy efficiency labels and Ecodesign requirements is projected to lead to energy savings of around 165 Mtoe (million tonnes of oil equivalent) in the EU, roughly equivalent to the annual primary energy consumption of Italy. In relative terms, this represents a potential energy saving of approximately 9% of the EU's total energy consumption and a potential 7% reduction in carbon emissions
  • In 2030, this saving is projected to grow to 15% of the EU's total energy consumption and 11% of its total carbon emissions.
