The ComeOn Labels project aims at summarising the best European experience related to the energy labelling of appliances and supporting the proper implementation of the new labelling scheme. Its goal is to enhance the visibility and credibility given to the EU energy label and to improve the market for labelled products.
There are three main areas related to the proper functioning of the Energy Label:
These three components contribute to a common target of constant improvement of the energy efficiency of household appliances and energy using products in general, and a more informed choice of these appliances by the end user – the consumer – especially in the light of the adaption of the new legislation concerning energy labels at national level.
The main goals of the project are to support the proper organisation of the above activities at national level, to identify best practice examples and to make it available at European level and internationally.
This information will be combined and completed with proper information on labels (for example correct information included in the labels for the different products, verification of compliance through appliance testing), proper display of the energy labels on energy using products in shops (including retailer compliance verification), catalogues and electronic means (e-commerce, internet advertising, mail orders, etc.), and the organisation of promotion activities aimed at the final customers (information and education materials and awareness campaigns) the research on whether and at what age the old and less efficient appliances should be replaced, using labelling as a guide for the purchase of efficient new appliances.
