The Institute of Refrigeration will be holding a free TechTalk and webinar on 5 March focusing on ecodesign and energy labelling.
The afternoon session will take place at the Arden Hotel in Solihull, Birmingham, and will be presented by Judith Evans FInstR.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the refrigeration specialist talk about this highly anticipated topic and ask questions.
For those not able to attend in person, the presentation will also be available as a live webinar.
The Ecodesign Directive and Energy Labelling Directive remain hot topics in refrigeration, providing a framework for minimum energy performance standards and regulating the sale of commercial refrigerated equipment in Europe.
A number of refrigeration products are already subject to, or will soon be subject to, the regulations under these directives.
The Ecodesign regulations apply some quite stringent minimum performance requirements on manufacturers.
Separate energy label regulations ensure that buyers have a measure of the energy used by the product as well as sometimes a measure of other environmental impacts.
To date over 40 product groups are included within the ecodesign and labelling regulations and are responsible for around 40% of all EU greenhouse gas emissions.
The regulations are considered an effective means to eliminate the poorest performing products from the market and are integral to achieving climate change targets in the EU.
