On 19 May 2010, the EU adopted the Directive 2010/30/EU on energy labels. Energy labels help consumers choosinging products which save energy and thus money. They also provide incentives for the industry to develop and invest in energy efficient product design.The energy efficiency of the product is rated in energy levels ranging from A to G on the outside label. 'A' stands for the most energy efficient and 'G' for the least energy efficient. Light bulbs, cars and most electrical appliances (e.g. refrigerators, stoves, washing machines) carry the EU Energy Label.
