Summaries of EU Legislation on Energy policy.
Energy efficiency: energy performance of buildings
The Member States must apply minimum requirements as regards the energy performance of new and existing buildings, ensure the certification of their energy performance and require the regular inspection of boilers and air conditioning systems in buildings.
Ecodesign for energy-using appliances
The EU's 'ecodesign' is a new concept aimed at reducing energy consumption by products such as household electrical appliances. Information concerning a product's environmental performance and energy efficiency must be visible if possible on the product itself, thus allowing consumers to compare before purchasing.
