ErP Working Plan

Ecodesign Working Plan 2016 - 2019 was released in November 2016, as a part of the Commission’s programme Clean energy for all Europeans.

New products that will be considered are: building automation and control systems, electric kettles, hand dryers, lifts, solar panels and inverters, refrigerated containers, and high pressure cleaners.

The Working Plan 2016-2019 is seen as an important part ot the Circular Economy package, published in December 2015. The design of a product is important for its durability, reparability, and recyclability.

With the measures for the new products in the Working Plan and the revision of existing measures, the Commission states that an additional 600 TWH primary energy savings will be made by 2030. This corresponds to the yearly energy consumption of Sweden. 

The Ecodesign Working Plan sets out an indicative list of product groups that are considered as priorities for the adoption of implementing measures. The working plan covering 2009-2011 was replaced by a working plan for 2012-2014 in December 2012.
