The Energy-related Products (ErP) Directive does not set binding requirements on products by itself. Instead, it sets requirements by implementing measures adopted on a case-by-case basis for each product group. The tests include energy efficiency, performance, endurance, luminous efficacy, ballast efficiency, utilization factor, and so on.
Energy efficiency improvements, including more efficient use of electricity by end users, make substantial contributions to achieving greenhouse gas emission targets.
