Focus Area // Energy Efficiency /Single Lighting Regulation

The Ecodesign Directive is the cornerstone of the EU sustainable industrial policy.

At the moment three Ecodesign related lighting regulations, or implementing measures, are in place covering a variety of lamps, ballasts and luminaire. An additional regulation defines the energy labelling of electrical lamps and luminaires.

Our suggestion is to focus on lighting systems initiatives to stimulate the replacement of the installed park of old and linefficient appliances. Furthermore, before further regulating, it is necessary to solve existing problems and barriers, such as the surveillance of implementation, including closing loopholes in the current legislation
