Towards a new Energy Labelling Framework: Priorities for Trialogue Negotiations

Published:

Policies and Issues:
Energy Labelling Directive

Under the headline “Transforming Europe’s energy system” and as part of the Energy Union Strategy, the Commission presented in summer 2015 its proposal for a new Energy Labelling Framework. “Energy Efficiency First” has been considered a central principle of the Energy Union strategy, because it is such an effective way to cut emissions, bring savings to consumers, and reduce the EU's fossil fuel import dependency.

Orgalime believes in “Energy Efficiency First” and Consumer Empowerment, including through reliable, simple and easy to understand energy efficiency information. Energy Labelling is one essential pillar in the EU’s energy policy acquis that no doubt delivered convincing results and where more Europe translated into added value for its citizens as much as for its Orgalime and the environment.

This success and today’s European companies’ global energy efficiency technology leadership should be continued, which is essential for our industry to continue to develop in the EU and provide new jobs as we are doing today. Therefore, we call on the European Institutions to take into account the following industry priorities in the trialogue negotiations
