New EU Energy-Efficiency And Labelling Requirements for Space Heaters and Combination Heaters in Force

Two new regulations under the EU Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC and the EU Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU concerning in particular space heaters and combination heaters have entered into force on 26 September 2016, the German Energy Agency (dena) informed.

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 813/2013 of 2 August 2013 implements Directive 2009/125/EC with regard to ecodesign requirements for space heaters and combination heaters. It establishes ecodesign requirements (aimed at improving energy efficiency) for the placing on the market and/or putting into service of space heaters and combination heaters with a rated heat output ≤ 400 kW, including those integrated in packages of space heater, temperature control and solar device or packages of combination heater, temperature control and solar device as defined in Article 2 of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 811/2013. The requirements are listed in Annex II and apply in a staggered fashion starting 26 September 2015.

Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 811/2013 supplements Directive 2010/30/EU with regard to the energy labelling of space heaters, combination heaters, packages of space heater, temperature control and solar device and packages of combination heater, temperature control and solar device. It establishes requirements for the energy labelling of, and the provision of supplementary product information on the aforementioned heaters and devices with a rated heat output ≤ 70 kW. The detailed requirements are set out in Article 3 and mainly apply as of 26 September 2015.

According to the text of the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 813/2013 the combined effect of said Regulation and of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 811/2013 is expected to result by 2020 in estimated annual energy savings of about 1 900 PJ (about 45 Mtoe), corresponding to around 110 Mt CO2 emissions, and a reduction in annual nitrogen oxides emissions of some 270 kt SOx equivalent.
