EuP Preparatory Studies Released In Connection With EuP Directive

Published January 15, 2008

Design for Environment

In connection with preparing for implementation of the EuP Directive, the Commission launched so-called "preparatory studies" on a series of product groups. By the end of 2007, the Commission published reports on (i) commercial refrigerators and freezers, (ii) gas-fired, oil-fired and electric central heating (combi-) boilers, and (iii) gas-fired, oil-fired and electric water heaters. All three studies find that there is significant potential to improve the energy efficiency of these products. The studies find that the consumer use phase of the equipment is the biggest contributor to the products' overall environmental impact (in the case of boilers and water heaters, the use phase is found to account for between 80 and 99 per cent of the impact).
