REACTION DRAFT MEASURES FOR ENERGY LABELLING AND ECODESIGN REQUIREMENTS FOR LOCAL SPACE HEATERS

In the context of the interservice consultation on the draft measures for energy labelling and ecodesign requirements for local space heaters, the Electric Underfloor Heating Alliance would like to reinforce the following points:
• Electric heating is a tried and tested technology that will be increasingly needed in the future and should be supported by decision-makers. No market distorting measures should be taken, especially not if they create costs, complexity and risks to consumers with no environmental benefits.
• The Members of EUHA welcome the maintaining of the exclusion of electric room heaters from the energy labelling scheme and the adoption of minimum efficiency standards as a feasible and appropriate alternative to a multi-fuel energy label.
• The Alliance is committed to continue working closely with the European Commission in the definition and deployment of measures and strongly supports the objective of energy savings.
