Over half refrigerators and freezers fail the European test

Tests show that only 47% of the products, all on the EU market, are true to their labelling on the basis of five parameters.

April 20, 2011 - PRLog -- Tests show that only 47% of the products, all on the EU market, are true to their labelling on the basis of five parameters: Energy consumption, storage temperature (including climate class), net volume, freezing capacity and temperature rise time. That percentage rises to 84% if efficiency class declaration only is considered, together with its two related parameters; energy consumption and storage volume.

Of the 40 manufacturers involved in the test, Whirlpool is one of the few correctly labeling their appliances under the perspective of both energy efficiency and capacity. The ATLETE project was born in 2009 with the intent to monitor the correct implementation of energy labeling on products sold within the European Union. Together with CECED, four other institutional partners were involved in the project; France’s ADEME, Italy’s ENEA and ISIS, and Czech Republic’s SEVEn.

The final results were presented by ATLETE in the course of a conference held in Brussels during the European Union’s Sustainable Energy Week (11-15 April). The cost of the project was one million Euros, 75% of which was sustained by European Commission’s “Intelligent Energy Europe” program.
