The draft reports of Task 3 “Users”, 4 “Technologies” and 5 “Environment & Economics” within the review study of the regulation on ecodesign and labelling requirements for air conditioners and comfort fans have been made available for discussion during the 2nd stakeholder meeting on 12 January 2018 in Brussels. 

International Energy Agency (IEA) identifies four major trends for the next 25 years

The four trends identified by IEA are that the United States is set to become the global oil and gas exporter, renewables are being deployed rapidly thanks to falling costs, the share of electricity in the energy mix is growing, and China’s new economic strategy takes it on a cleaner growth mode, with implications for global energy markets. 

Evolving industry views and proposal on cascading regulations (formerly: double regulation)

In 2015, the European Commission paper on ‘Ecodesign for energy-related products integrated into other energy-related products’ was discussed during a Consultation Forum. It provides for an interpretation and could serve as basis for further discussion. Throughout the past two years, industry views and proposals have evolved. Recently, some associations have re-entered discussions on this subject and propose a distinction between ‘bespoke’ and ‘catalogue’ products. Eurovent members are asked to critically reflect on this subject and to share their views with the Secretariat.

CECED and Eurovent provide comments on Task 1 & 2 of the ecodesign and energy labelling review study on air-conditioners and comfort fans

In this paper, CECED and Eurovent have jointly provided input for the European Commission review study of ecodesign and energy labelling for air conditioners and comfort fans (Commission Regulation (EU) No 206/2012 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 626/2011). The paper specifically addresses Task 1 and Task 2 of the Study’s draft interim report.

Eurovent would like to thank its members for acting at national level towards the European Commission. The Commission has provided its comments to WTO earlier today.
