Promotion and support to the implementation of the energy labelling for Space, Combi Heaters and Water Heaters with a focus on the “Package Label”

Support the uptake of the heating energy labeling regulation, with a focus on the PACKAGE LABEL for highly efficient combinations of conventional and renewable heating systems.


The Label Pack A+ purpose is to support the implementation of the energy labeling of heating appliances (that entered in force in September 2015) while boosting its impact, the focus being on the PACKAGE LABEL and its potential to push for the uptake of renewable technologies, in particular solar thermal, in combination with efficient conventional technologies. Its main objectives are the development of a user-friendly online tool for the application of the energy labeling methodology, the definition of guidelines to clarify the responsibility of each actor in the supply chain, and to facilitate the exchange of product related information between all actors involved in the energy labeling process.
