EU guideline space heaters and tentative ecodesign planning (GEN – 770.00)

27 April 2017

2 min read

GEN – 770.00. The Commission has just released an update of the guidelines for space and water heaters. The overview of the Ecodesign legislation has been updated and completed with some impact assessment studies. Of note is also the planning of the Commission ecodesign activities.

The updated overview of the Ecodesign legislation now contains the impact assessments for air heating products, cooling products, high temperature process chillers and fan coil units (aka Ener Lot 21). The standardisation request to accompany this regulation has also been made available.

The Commission has also released the updated list of responsibilities for eco-design and energy labelling files together with a (tentative) planning of its activities. Of these the following, can be noted.

The review study for air-conditioners and fans (Ener Lot 10) has started (https://www.eco-airconditioners.eu/).

For Ener Lot 11 Fans the work is to start. An exploratory meeting initiated by VHK will take place with a limited number of participants on 15 May. The objective is present this file to the Regulatory Scrutiny Board by the end of 2017. The actual start depends on the progress of the file on motors.

The files that have not been allocated are not likely to start. The Ener Lot 12 on Commercial Refrigeration will not progress soon.

The report notes that data quality and availability of smart building indicators (such as dynamic and self-learning control systems) are currently not adequate to foster development in this sector.

Recommended Action

Manufacturers of for air heating products, cooling products, high temperature process chillers and fan coil units are recommended to read the impact assessment studies. A review within the product groups can be useful to prepare for the revision in 2019.
