European Union adopts four ecodesign measures

European UnionI was noting yesterday that renewable energies are progressing in Europe. I wrote there that combined with energy efficiency measures, we could achieve a low carbon future.

It seems I was right as the European commission adopted four ecodesign measures that will save 190 TWh per year by 2020, the combined power consumption of Austria and Sweden.

These new regulations concern industrial motors, circulators found in heating systems, televisions, refrigarators and freezers. These are absolutely fantastic news.To the official press release :

In total nine ecodesign regulations have now been put in place, which are expected to save about 315 TWh electricity per year by 2020 if fully implemented. This is more than the annual electricity consumption of Italy.
