Welcome to the website on the evaluation of the Energy Labelling Directive and specific aspects of the Ecodesign Directive.
Article 14 of the Energy Labelling Directive (2010/30/EU) requires the Commission to report about its effectiveness to the European Parliament and to the Council before 31 December 2014. As to the Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), the Commission's 2012 review of the directive (COM(2012) 765 final from 17 December 2012) concluded that specific aspects of the directive can be reassessed if appropriate in the 2014 review of the Energy Labelling Directive. The Commission launched this study in order to prepare the review of the Energy Labelling Directive and certain aspects of the Ecodesign Directive.
The activities under this evaluation started in May 2013 and are led by Ecofys (Netherlands), in cooperation with Waide Strategic Efficiency (United Kingdom), SoWatt (France), SEVEn, The Energy Efficiency Center (Czech Republic), ISR University of Coimbra (Portugal), and Öko-Institut (Germany).
