Ecodesign for Heat Generators

The Ecodesign Directive should achieve improved energy efficiency and overall environmental performance of energy-related products. The features of the devices are communicated through the energy label - L0 in a sales-effective manner towards the final consumer. For manufacturers, uncertainty frequently exists, however, when dealing with the directives.

Initial situation and requirements

Manufacturers of heat generators have to report their energy consumption / energy efficiency - L0 as part of the Ecodesign Directive (via energy label).

In doing so, they document whether it is a product of the efficiency class A, B or others. Desirable is Class A or even better. For this purpose, the devices must be further or newly developed.

Solutions, results

TÜV Rheinland has been selected for these types of inspections based on the basis of their know-how and the existence of appropriate inspection facilities. The respective customers have the goal to be a pioneer in their field in the implementation of the Ecodesign Directive.
