Add an energy label and energy efficiency class

In the European Union, certain types of products require an energy label. This energy label indicates the energy efficiency of the product. This enables customers to make informed choices based on the energy consumption of energy-related products.

In 2021, the energy label was reformed by the European Union and since March 1, 2021 the new energy label is required for different household applications for example washing machines, dishwashers, and freezers.

Compared to former energy labels there are some substantial changes regarding the format and the presented information. One of the changes is that the plus classes A+, A++, and A+++ are replaced by the new classes A to G. For further information, refer to the article provided by the European Union "New EU energy labels applicable from 1 March 2021".

Caution

Note that the new energy label requirements also apply to older devices, which may need to be relabeled.
