TESLAbikář - Energy label or how to read it

Episode 10 - Evolution of energy labels

In the second part of our series, we look at why energy labels have changed and what the new design is. Energy labels, those little labels that tell us how efficient our electrical appliance or light bulb is, have undergone a significant transformation. But why?

Why the change?

The energy label system, introduced in 1995, served its purpose, but time and technological advances required updating. The old A+, A++ and A+++ classes of 2010 have brought confusion, with most appliances being placed in the highest categories and thus losing their relevance. This led to confusion and misinterpretation for consumers.

What did the new look bring?

1. Simpler categories

The new label system provides simpler and clearer categories that clearly indicate the energy efficiency of appliances. We can also mention here the fact that the LED bulb shines at full power almost immediately after switching on.

2. Matching technology

As technology continues to evolve, a new category is being added to more fairly reflect the efficiency of modern appliances.

3. Clear comparison

Consumers can now easily compare the efficiency of different appliances without being confused by too many categories.

The new energy label system is a step forward towards transparency and facilitating informed decision-making. Follow our series to stay up to date on the latest energy efficiency trends!
