Ecodesign Requirements for Televisions
The focus of this project was the implementation of the EU Directive 2005/32/EC on ecodesign requirements for energy using products (the EuP Directive) with special attention to the ecodesign requirements for televisions (TV).
Danish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) – Denmark
The project was a collaborative effort with University of Aalborg conducted for the Danish EPA. The project resulted in a project report as well as an article published in the International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment. Project completed January 2013.
Implications of EU Directive for TVs
The implementation of the EU Directive 2005/32/EC on ecodesign was investigated for televisions (TVs). The aim of the project was to investigate the scope of the Implementing Measures (IM), how ambitious the requirements of the IM are, and to what degree they can promote eco-innovations of TVs.
The project covered five parts:
• Definition of ecodesign
• The EuP process: from preparatory study to Implementing Measures
• The relations between EuP Implementing Measures and the different
energy and environmental labelling schemes
• New market and technology trends compared to requirements of
Implementing Measures and ecolabelling
• Analysis of the EU Energy labelling scheme for TVs
