What does it
ERP is short for Energy Related Products.
This description covers all products that consume energy or have an impact on energy consumption (a building ventilation system for example). This directive covers a wide range of products, including domestic and professional air treatment systems, ventilation, heating and hot water production equipment.
what use is it?
Improve the energy efficiency of equipment
This Europe-wide policy has been designed to improve the energy efficiency of equipment throughout the European Union, thus making a contribution to the protection of the environment. The policy comprises two directives: Eco-conception & Energy labelling.
What are the advantages to the consumer?
A guarantee that the market's most 'energy-hungry' products will disappear.
In the residential market, thanks to energy labelling, the consumer can more easily identify the energy performance levels of each product; Clear indications of the electricity consumption and noise levels of each device facilitate comparison and choice. For commercial ventilation units, not covered by this energy labelling system, professionals can also compare the global energy performance of each manufacturer's products, using our independent index rating.
What countries are involved?
Austria, the Azores, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Canaries, Cyprus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madeira, Malta, Martinique, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Reunion, Romania, Saint-Barthelemy, Saint-Martin, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Turkey.
To each their own role
What is the timeline for the implementation of the ERP directive?
3 Key Dates:
for Thermal Comfort products: Air/air Heat Exchanger Pumps
for Thermal Comfort products: Water heaters,
Air/Water Heat Exchanger Pumps
for Ventilation products
Will this new standard lead to price increases?
Over the medium to long terms, this directive will reduce energy consumption and therefore produce savings, thus absorbing any potential slight increases in the purchasing cost.
