More transparency for more sustainability
The EU energy label classifies electrical devices according to their energy consumption and is intended to increase the demand for efficient products. Due to increasing complexity, the previous labels offered consumers little transparency in recognising differences in efficiency. The new label returns to the original A to G efficiency scale. Classifications like A+++ are therefore a thing of the past.
In the current transition phase, Liebherr refrigerators and freezers are marked with both the old and new labels. New measurement and calculation methods means that the values are no longer fully comparable – which poses a challenge for manufacturers such as Liebherr-Hausgeräte in terms of communication. “This means that appliances previously rated A+++ will now have a B, C or D label, even though they consume just as little energy as before,” says Steffen Nagel, Head of Sales and Marketing at Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH. To provide the incentive for future efficiency innovations, the higher ratings are harder to achieve than before, but the refrigerators and freezers from Liebherr still have consistently impressive ratings even under the new system – particularly in the case of the new sustainable fully integrated appliances which Liebherr will be launching in April.
