Trade Energy Labelling Toolkit
New labelling explained
New energy labels have been introduced for
- Washing machines
- Washer dryers
- Fridges and freezers
- Wine storage
These new labels are already appearing in product boxes and from 1st March 2021 will replace the old labels on all displays.
Why have new labels?
Major improvements in energy saving technology have raised these large household appliances to the top of the rating scale, where they are clustered from A to A+++. To create space for further advances the energy ratings have been revised. Using new measurements criteria, current models will be rated simply from A to G, with no plusses, making it easier for customers to compare products and allowing the industry space to develop eco-performance.
AMDEA’s toolkit aims to help the industry explain the changes to customers.
