The project partner in GErmany, Öko Institute, had delevoped a leaflet explaining new energy labels to the consumers, which is circulated to the clients of energy utilities, which are a member of ASEW - The German Association of Municipal Utilities Supporting Sustainable Resource Management.
The German project partner has organised a retailer training, where representatives of a retailer chain received detailed information about the new energy labels and discussed the recent developments in energy labelling and its proper dispaly at the points of sales. Find the presentation in German language.
Results of the project shop visits, organised in early 2013 in Germany by Öko Institute, have been published in a form of a press release. Several media have published the results and highlighted the situation related to product labelling in shops.
Energy labels are considered as an effective tool to promote energy efficient appliances, but other programmes are also being organised to further support the replacement of appliances - to take place quicker or choosing more efficient models. Find a document summarising and evaluating product replacement schemes being organised within the duration of the project and in the countries covered by the project consortium.
