Ecodesign and Energy labelling

The EU legislation on Ecodesign and energy labelling is a tool for reducing the environmental impact of energy related products during their whole lifecycle and to help consumers choosing the most energy efficient product on the market.

Ecodesign means there will be minimum requirements on energy efficiency on energy related products sold within EU markets (CE labelled). By setting clear requirements on energy efficiency, manufacturers will need to take this into consideration already in the design phase. While ecodesign helps eliminating the least performing products from the market, the energy labelling directive set requirements on products to be marked with an energy label scale from A (green) to G (red).
This will guide consumers to choose the most energy efficient products resulting in lower running cost and reduced environmental impact.


In the graph you will be able to see how much energy EU expects to save every year from 2020 through ecodesign requirements on the products currently covered. The total energy reduction for these products is 340 TWh. 


Energy labelling
Requirements for product energy labelling includes a label on the product itself. The information provided is aimed at consumers and is simplified without all details. Additionally manufacturers, importers and distributors must be able to provide more comprehensive information.

What has Flexit done?
Flexits air handling units for residential buildings, fans for central ventilation and kitchen hoods with motor are all covered by the ecodesign directive. Energy labels on the products have been implemented and the energy label is included in all product documentation, both in printed material and on web
