Energy labelling for heating devices – an opportunity for the consumer
Date: Friday 25. of September 2015

 

Brussels, 25 September 2015 - As from 26 September 2015, nearly all heating devices must bear labels indicating the energy efficiency of space heating systems, hot water devices and storage tanks. It will also mark the launch of a new type of label on the market: the package label. With this package label the consumer will have an indication of the energy efficiency of a system combining several devices, including renewable energy systems such as solar thermal. Product and package energy...

Energy labelling for heating devices – a challenge and an opportunity for dealers and installers
Date: Thursday 24. of September 2015

 

 

Brussels, 24 September 2015 – As from 26 September 2015, labelling of space heating systems, hot water devices and storage tanks will become mandatory for manufacturers, dealers and installers. It will also mark the launch of a new type of label on the market: the package label, a process which requires a more active involvement from dealers and installers. The product and package labels will rate heaters from the lowest efficiency G to the highest A+++, which can only be reached with...

Open Letter to European Commissioners on Investment Protection

The European renewable energy industry calls for the adoption of measures to protect investments in the renewable energy sector by the European Commission.

Meeting the 2030 renewable energy target through a robust governance system
Date: Monday 14. of September 2015

Brussels 14 September 2015 - The European renewables industry welcomes the European Commission’s February 2015 Energy Union package, which sent a positive signal on the need to move away from a fossil-fuel based energy system. To fulfil its long term decarbonisation objectives, set in the 2050 Energy Roadmap, the EU needs to support clean and indigenous renewable energies that provide security of supply and boost economic growth and domestic jobs.

Heating and Cooling Strategy: joint industry letter to Dominique Ristori, Director General, DG Energy, European Commission

Positive outlook for some European solar thermal market segments, despite disappointing overall results in 2014
Date: Monday 29. of June 2015

Brussels, 29 June 2015 - In 2014, although the European solar thermal market experienced an overall decrease of around 7% in newly installed capacity, at the end of the year the total installed capacity increased by 5.3%. While this is the third consecutive year of decline for market leader Germany, some markets are bucking the trend.

A Smart and Resilient Energy Union: Objectives and Measures for the Heat Sector
Date: Wednesday 17. of June 2015

Brussels, 17 June 2015 - The EU Strategy for Heating and Cooling is the result of the increasingly positive attention policy-makers have been giving the Heating and Cooling (H&C) sector, and is a fundamental step in the recognition of its key role in the overall EU climate and energy objectives. The Strategy has the potential to lay solid and long-lasting foundations. The main objective of the Heat Strategy should be to define a pathway to achieve a sustainable, competitive and secure heat...

The European Commission Renewable Energy Progress Report: indicative targets for solar thermal energy are not being met. Further action from Member States needed.
