Energy efficiency of products
In the European Union, the energy efficiency of products is enhanced in two ways. On one hand, the manufacturing of products is regulated by ecodesign requirements that products must fulfil to be allowed to be placed on the EU market. On the other hand, energy labels are attached to products, e.g. on refrigerator doors, to help consumers choose energy efficient products.
Ecodesign requirements and energy labelling significantly reduce the overall consumption of energy in Finland and in Europe.
