Some of the measures are now nearing their publication, including the revision of a few revised directives.

Appliance Efficiency Regulations Rulemaking

The State of California is transparent with regards to its rulemaking. It is at the same time similar and different to legislation in Europe. Stakeholders can provide input to the rulemaking and participate to discussion, also from a distance. It can be noted that these developments are echoed and sometimes provide inspiration for European legislation.

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.
