EPREL energy labels for lighting products
Up to now, we have been familiar with the EU energy label mainly from end appliances such as refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers, etc. With the " Regulation on energy labelling for light sources (EU) 2019/2015", mandatory labelling for lamps and luminaires will come into force with effect from 1st September 2021. Lighting products are defined as follows:
"A luminaire is a complete lighting apparatus that distributes, filters or transforms light from one or more lamps. A luminaire also contains parts for holding and protecting the lamps. There are different types of luminaires such as floor, table, wall, pendant and ceiling luminaires as well as chandeliers and spotlights." [ Source: LIGHTING | EU COMMISSION (EUROPA.EU) ]
In addition, there are eco-design requirements for luminaires in terms of energy efficiency and other factors such as lifetime and start-up time, which are regulated in so-called eco-design regulations. As of 1st September 2021, the existing provisions of "Regulations (EC) No 244/2009"' '(EC) No 245/2009" and "(EU) No 1194/2012" will be repealed and replaced by "Regulation for eco-design requirements for light sources and separate control gears (EU) 2019/2020".
The aim of these measures of the European Commission is to save electricity and subsequently to reduce CO2 emissions.
On the right you will find an example of an energy label. In addition to the scale from A (highest efficiency) to G (lowest efficiency), the so-called EPREL energy labels contain information on energy consumption as well as a QR code that leads to a compilation of technical data on the respective lighting product in an online database.
If you have any questions regarding the labelling of our control cabinet luminaires with the EPREL energy label, please contact us by e-mail at EPREL@STEGO.DE.
