Ofgem launch helpsheet on ErP Directive and Energy Labelling Directive

Posted: 21 September, 2015. Written by Mark

The Ecodesign of Energy-related Products Directive (ErP) and the Energy Labelling Directive come into force for Space Heaters and Combination Heaters, including heat pumps on 26 September 2015. 

ErP sets a minimum performance criteria and provides a standard methodology for comparing the efficiency of heat pumps. The Energy Labelling Directive will introduce a product label and a package label. It is envisaged that this will enable consumers and installers to identify the best performing heat pumps.

In preparation for these changes Ofgem have produced a helpsheet explaining how they impact the Domestic RHI, which can be found here.
