Policy Recommendations for Office LuminairesRecommendations for Lighting Products: lamps and luminaires (pdf)
Summary and key policy recommendations
With the ecodesign regulations from 2009 on classical (‘non-directional’) household lamps and professional lamps, from 2012 on reflectors (‘directional’ lamps) and LED lamps as well as with the new energy label (now covering all lamp types) important policy steps have been taken supporting the efficiency development of the lamp market. From its overview on the high efficiency market, Topten still sees important possibilities to guarantee an on-going market transformation towards higher efficiency and to cover additional, vast energy saving potentials with an energy label for office luminaires. All regulations of concern will be revised in 2015. This will be the moment to implement the recommendations described here.
