The Ecodesign Consultation on ‘Air Heating Products, Cooling Products and High Temperature Process Chillers has now been released as an action under the Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC1 which establishes a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-related products. The Directive lists products identified by the Council and the European Parliament as priorities for the Commission for implementation, including heating and cooling equipment (Article 16). Therefore, heating and cooling equipment, widely used in the European Union, are priority product groups considered for implementing measures under the Ecodesign Directive.
The scope of the proposed Regulation includes the following generic types of products:
1) air heating products with a rated heat output up to 1 MW;
2) cooling products with a rated cooling output up to 2 MW;
3) high temperature process chillers.
Any company that falls within these products area can contact B2B Compliance for further information.
