Energy labels

Energy labels:

  • rank appliances on a scale from A to G according to how much energy they consume
  • help consumers save money by choosing products that consume less energy
  • can encourage companies to design products that consume less energy

Class A (green) appliances consume the least energy – making them the most energy‑efficient. Class G (red) appliances consume the most energy.

EU rules on energy labelling also apply to some ‘energy‑related products’: goods or systems with an impact on energy consumption during use. The rules do not apply to second-hand products or to means of transport for persons or goods.

Label rating system without the plus sign

Since March 2021, the energy label rating system uses A to G rankings only, instead of A+++ to D ratings as before. This new rating system applies to the following product groups:

  • refrigerators
  • dishwashers
  • washing machines
  • televisions
  • light bulbs and lamps

The first 4 product groups must feature the rescaled labels from 1 March 2021. Light bulbs and lamps must feature the rescaled label from 1 September 2021.

Products that require labels

For certain product groups, an energy label must be clearly displayed on each product at the point of sale.
