Assumptions:

Volume (l)

Usable Volume of the cavity in litres (l).

Energy class

Energy efficiency class according to the EU Energy Label (regulation No. 65/2014). The classification scale is based on the EEI. For class A+ an EEI below 82 is required.

Energy (kWh)

Energy consumption per cycle in kWh/cycle for both heating functions (if available):

EEI

Energy Efficiency Index (EEI) according to the Energy Labelling regulation No 65/2014. More efficient ovens have a lower EEI. The EEI calculation is based on the energy consumption of a cycle in conventional mode or with fan-forced convection, whichever the lower, and the cavity volume.
