Lot 2 (water heaters): New working documents available

The EU Commission has released new working documents on ecodesign and energy labelling of water heaters and hot water storage tanks. An additional working document related to transitional testing and calculation methods will follow.

Having included feedback, the Commission will launch the Inter Service Consultation (within the EU Commission) and draft documents for vote in the Regulatory Committee (concerns only ecodesign). Besides boilers (Lot 1) this product group bears the highest energy saving potential among the product groups addressed under the Ecodesign Directive so far.
