Energy Rating and Labelling

From September 2013 new EU guidlines were issued to deal with energy efficiency ratings and labelling of electrical products including lighting.

The full document outlining the regulation can be found here.

All our products are rated A+ under new EU energy rating regulations, as calculated from the following diagrams:
Non-directional lamps energy rating

Directional lamps energy ratings

 

The energy efficiency class of lamps shall be determined on the basis of their energy efficiency index (EEI)

Class Non-Directional Lamps Directional Lamps
A++ EEI ≤ 0,11 EEI ≤ 0,13
A+ 0,11 < EEI ≤ 0,17 0,13 < EEI ≤ 0,18
A 0,17 < EEI ≤ 0,24 0,18 < EEI ≤ 0,40
B 0,24 < EEI ≤ 0,60 0,40 < EEI ≤ 0,95
C 0,60 < EEI ≤ 0,80 0,95 < EEI ≤ 1,20
D 0,80 < EEI ≤ 0,95 1,20 < EEI ≤ 1,75
E EEI > 0,95 EEI > 1,75

This video shows how equipment can be used to make calculation for directional light sources.
