New energy labels have been introduced for:
From 1st March 2021, these new labels will replace the old labels on all displays.
Why is there a new energy label?
As companies have improved the energy and water efficiency of their products, today almost all appliances are ranked in the former top three energy classes (A+, A++, A+++) so A+ is currently the least efficient label. To make room for further advances in technology and efficiency, the old scale will be replaced by a simple A-G energy classification system which will spread energy performance over a much wider scale, making it easier for consumers to compare products.
What will change?
