Energy-related Products: Call for Evidence

Closes 4 Sep 2020

Opened 12 Jun 2020

Overview

Energy-related products are goods such as washing machines, lighting and televisions, which use energy or affect energy consumption when in use or in standby mode.

This call for evidence explores how effective policies for energy-related products in homes and businesses can support the UK’s transition to net zero by 2050. In particular, we are seeking evidence on:

  • how to improve the efficacy of ecodesign and energy labelling policy in the UK to realise greater energy and carbon savings as well as other environmental benefits of more resource efficient products
  • whether better minimum energy performance standards and resource efficiency requirements could be set for certain products
  • whether there are any other policy measures that could help to increase the uptake of energy and resource efficient products
