Digi-Label: Digital tools to complement the Energy Label

The Digi-Label project (‘Delivering digital Energy Labelling solutions to enable consumer action on purchasing energy efficient appliances’) will design and deliver digital tools to complement the EU energy label. By allowing for a better understanding of the energy consumption of appliances through digital solutions, Digi-Label aims at positively influencing consumer-buying choices, helping deliver greater energy savings, and secure an increased market share of the highest performing appliances. The project will target four of the top five EU economies – Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK – through established commitments from manufacturers and retailers to test and launch the digital solutions.

Funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, this project will run from April 2016 to March 2019, bringing together 11 European partners with proven expertise in the energy labelling of products. In collaboration with all the consortium members, ECOS assisted in the development of this project, and will be in charge of developing a viable and effective pilot strategy for the implementation of digital solutions for energy labelling.
