The Energy Labelling Regulation supports the EU 2030 Climate and Energy policy Framework with the key objective to reduce energy demand.
The Regulation enables consumers to make an informed choice for energy and other resource savings. It also contributes to the EU Circular Economy Plan.
It repeals the previous Directive (2010/30/EU) and modifies and enhances the provisions within the existing scope. A Regulation has replaced a Directive as it gives clear rules which reduce the chance of divergent transposition into local Member State laws.
