ErP stands for “Energy Related Products”. ErP is supported by Ecodesign Directive (2009/125/EC), which is aiming towards significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and overall energy consumption by the year 2020.
While supporting efficient use of energy and energy related products and phasing out inefficient products, the Ecodesign directive also makes energy information and data about energy-efficient products more transparent and easy accessible for consumers.
The implementation of the Ecodesign Directive is split into a number of product areas, called ”lots”, focusing especially on the areas with significant energy consumption. Ventilation units are included in Ecodesign Lot 6, concerning ventilation, heating and air conditioning, an area, which represents about 15% of the total energy consumption in the EU.
Lindab air handling units selection made easy
The new energy check will be implemented into our selection software AirCalc++ by the end of 2015, as all air handling units, produced for European Market have to fulfill ErP2016 requirements from 1st January 2016. The next step is ErP2018, which will be implemented from 1st January 2018.
