Draft Energy Efficiency Ordinance; ((20 page(s), in French and Italian)), ((19 page(s), in German))

The notified draft ordinance will set out stricter (1-6) or novel (7-8) minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for

1.    household refrigerators;

2.    household tumble driers;

3.    household dishwashers;

4.    professional refrigerated storage cabinets;

5.    electric hot water storage heaters;

6.    centralized and decentralized electric heaters;

7.    professional dishwashers;

8.    professional cooking appliances;

in order to reduce their respective electricity consumption and increase the national security of electricity supply. The MEPS will lead to overall cost savings for consumers and businesses over the use phase of these products. Products not meeting these requirements will not be allowed to be placed on the Swiss market. A one-year transition period will allow the selling of non-compliant appliances that have been placed on the market before the date of entry in force.
