Simplifying energy labels for home appliances to A to G 

Household appliances will be labelled with A to G ratings to indicate their energy consumption rather than with A+/A++/A+++.

MEPs will debate and vote on Tuesday on a deal concluded with the Council, enabling customers to have a simpler tool for choosing more efficient products to reduce energy consumption and their energy bills, thus encouraging manufacturers to innovate and invest in more energy-efficient products.

Customers should be able to see the first new labels with the new scale indications in shops at the earliest at the end of 2019.

Procedure: Ordinary legislative procedure
2015/0149(COD)
Debate/vote:  Tuesday, 13 June

Press conference: Wednesday, 14 June, 16.30 with Rapporteur Dario Tamburrano (EFDD, IT)
