The new energy label


The energy label for household appliances and other products has helped consumers choose energy efficient products for more than 25 years. It's also helped manufacturers and retailers develop and sell innovative and efficient products.

Due to increased demand for more environmentally friendly products, the energy that products use has been cut down considerably, making the old A+++ to G label scales less effective. The use of multiple '+' signs reduced clarity and most modern products occupied the top two or three classes. This made it more difficult for consumers to identify the most efficient products.

The label has therefore been revised and optimised. The new label, available now in online and physical stores, features a new, simpler range - A to G.
