Energy classes in the EU energy labelling scheme as of 1 July 2016

Energy classes in the EU energy labelling scheme as of 1 July 2016

EU energy labelling from 1st July 2016

Ecodesign is a joint European wide energy labelling scheme for professional refrigerators and freezers. It is based on a new EU ECO-design requirement which sets Minimum Energy Performance standards for commercial refrigeration cabinets sold within the EU. In practice this will mean that all products which consume energy above the minimum level will not be able to be sold within the EU from 1 July 2016.

The new requirements of ECO-design, which are designed to drive energy efficiency and environmentally friendly design, will apply to all manufacturers and importers who sell and market products within the EU.

The labelling scheme is mandatory across Europe, and is based on a letter-based rating from A to G, where A denotes the most energy saving products. To further improve energy efficiency the energy thresholds will be tightened at intervals. This means that class A+++ will be introduced on 1 July 2019.

All SUPERIOR and ECO refrigerators in the Plus, Twin, Euro and Midi series meet the requirements of energy class A. Display cabinets are exempted from the present directive.

In the UK it is CESA the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association is responsible for ensuring compliance with the new energy labelling scheme.
