On Wednesday, June 8, 2022, at 10 a.m., there will be a free educational online webinar on an app Checking the Efficiency of Devices and the proper use of energy labels for public procurement.

Namely, after the introduction of new energy labels from March 1, 2021 (for refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, combined dryers, dishwashers, televisions, electronic screens, and light sources), LABEL2020 project developed an application that makes it even easier to choose when buying these home appliances.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  • new energy label - goals and benefits
  • products that have new energy labels
  • what changes apply to public procurement?
  • what are the changes when making a professional purchase?
  • new energy label: comparison of energy efficiency classes
  • app Checking the Efficiency of Devices

The project is led by the Hrvoje Požar Energy Institute, and energy efficiency expert Marko Bišćan will hold the webinar..

About the LABEL2020 project

EIHP, in cooperation with partners, is implementing the international project LABEL2020, funded by the European Commission through Horizon 2020, coordinated by the Austrian Energy Agency for 15 EU Member States and the United Kingdom. Its purpose is to provide practical information on new energy labels for household appliances to consumers, distributors, and manufacturers and support all stakeholders in the transition to new labels.

The new energy labels were introduced in March 2021 and represent the return of the European Union to the original concept of ranking products with regard to their energy efficiency according to classes A to G. Labeling with + sign was no longer transparent. It made it difficult for consumers to distinguish products.

The task of the LABEL 2020 project is to provide support to citizens and distributors by creating information materials during the transition from the old to the new energy efficiency labels (hr.label2020.eu), but the project has been extended to the initiative Save Energy! with the support of the FZOEU and the Ministry of the Economy and Sustainable Development of the Republic of Croatia. In the meantime, the Office for Economy, Energy, and Environmental Protection of the City of Zagreb and other stakeholders joined in as partners, recognizing the need to pass on information to citizens to help them choose and use household appliances with the least energy and money. On the page Tips for saving energy in the household - Save energy (ustedienergiju.hr) citizens are also presented with short and simple tips for saving energy.
