Ecodesign Impact Accounting (GEN – 1010.00)

01 April 2019

2 min read

GEN – 1010.00. The European Commission monitors and reports on the impact of Ecodesign and Energy Labelling measures, with a view to improve its understanding of the impacts over time and to fine-tune forecasting and reporting. The interest for the Eurovent members relates to forecast that is presented in the 2018 report and how this may affect ongoing and new review studies.

Ecodesign Impact Accounting (EIA) Status Report 2018

The first EIA developed the methodology and resulted in the first EIA report, which was released in 2016.

The new 2018 report is based on the 2018 Impact Assessments and Commission Working Documents. The monetary data are now expressed in 2015 euros (were 2010 euros in earlier issues).

For future projections (beyond 2016-2018), the annual energy price escalation has been reduced from 4% in the earlier reports, to 1-2%. The electricity and natural gas rates now differentiate between the residential, industry and tertiary sector. Sector subdivision data have been added for greenhouse gas emissions.

The accounting covers projections for the period 2010-2050 for the product groups with harmonisation of the base cases. For the period up to 2025-2030 inputs were derived from the available studies. The period beyond 2025-2030 is an extrapolation of the existing trend without any new measures. The report does not account for the possible development of new policies. The projections use two scenarios: a ‘business-as-usual’ (BAU) scenario and an ECO scenario that is derived from the policy scenario in the studies.

By 2020, the ECO scenario shows a 15% of primary energy saving compared to the BAU scenario. It is calculated that 930.000 new jobs have resulted from the Ecodesign measures. Nearly 58% of the 2020 final energy savings come from the residential sector, 26% from the tertiary sector, 10% from industry, 3% from transport, and 2% from other sectors.

Within the report double counting, e.g. where products are regulated both at component and product level, has been taken into account. The possible deficiencies in market surveillance and the effectiveness of the policy instruments are not taken into account.

PEF

Changes to the Primary Energy Factor (PEF), when the PEF of 2,1 is adopted, will interfere with efficiency calculated in Ecodesign and Labelling measures. The results in the report corresponds to a PEF of 2,5.

Recommended Actions

The manufacturers subject to Ecodesign and Energy labelling may find it interesting and useful to consult the updated data and forecasts for their products. The related Product Groups may find it useful to refer to the data in this report.
