Description of Content

This draft Commission Regulation complements existing minimum requirements on the energy efficiency of power transformers. In accordance with Framework Directive 2009/125/EC, products need to meet these minimum requirements when being placed on the EU market.

The draft Regulation is based on the technical and economic findings of a study specifically undertaken to review the existing regulation EU 548/2014, as well as on stakeholder feedback.

Objectives & Rationale
<p style="margin:2px !important;"><span style="font-face: Verdana;">The objectives are to contribute to the EU climate and energy targets (20/20/20 targets) and to the circular economy policy objectives. More specifically, this initiative is intended to ensure that power transformers being placed on the EU market result in energy savings and avoided CO<sub>2</sub> emissions throughout their service lives in a cost-effective manner.</span></p>
