Abstract

Energy labeling is believed to have great impact on the energy efficiency of household appliances sold. Many different labeling schemes exist around the world. As far as is known, none of these facilitates the easy tightening of specifications to keep up with technological advancements. The present proposed labeling scheme is simple and eliminates the above problem. The label simply consists of a year. That year would represent the year in which the performance of the product in question is/was state of the art. Each year the authorities would define the requirements for next year's label. It should be easily understandable by everybody: the more recent the year the better the product. The scheme readily lends itself for an almost unlimited variety of products, and would also cover properties other than energy consumption. It is always up to date, it is globally applicable, and it encourages manufacturers to continually improve their products.
