From 1st March 2021 new energy ratings will come into effect for refrigeration, dishwashers, washing machines and washer dryers.
The current energy label ratings A+++ to D will change to A to G. The conversion from the old ratings to the new won't be a straight-forward crossover. This is because of factors including more energy efficient components and different criteria.
Room for Improvement
The A and B categories will be empty for a while to leave space for technological advances and new more energy efficient appliances. More energy efficient components will include invertor motors and eco washing.
Products will have both the old and new energy label between the 1st Nov 2020 & 28th Feb 2021. From Mar 2021 just the new energy label needs to be supplied.
Introducing QR Codes
The new energy labels will also have a QR code so that you can easily find out more energy details of a product.
