Danish experience helps Irish market surveillance
Reference: The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland
How do you plan market surveillance for eco-design and energy labeling? With help from those who have done it before.
Viegand Maagøe has developed tools and evaluated saving potential for the Irish market surveillance.
How we completed the assignment
The purpose was to provide the Irish energy authorities a solid and reliable basis of knowledge to plan an effective market surveillance system including a prioritization tool, so that the surveillance will give the greatest energy saving effect possible.
Viegand Maagøe has used their great knowledge about market surveillance and strong analytical skillsets and solved the task in close cooperation with the Irish authorities.
Viegand Maagøe has:
- Developed a model for calculating the energy usage and the saving potential in Ireland for products that are affected by eco-design and the energy labeling legislation (35 products)
- Analysed the market of different products and distribution of energy usage by sector
- Established the baseline of energy consumption and estimated saving potential for 2030
- Developed a prioritization tool for market surveillance which takes energy saving effect, user protection, and influence on Irish economy and industry into account
- Developed a quatification method for evaluating market surveillance and energy savings
- Analysed legal issues regarding enforcement
- Delivered recommendations to improvements to the Irish legislation
Viegand Maagøe’s contribution has made it easier for the Irish authorities to build their surveillance program for eco-design and energy labeling and priotitizing products.
Based on our detailed market and energy analysis we have calculated that former and upcoming eco-design and energy labeling regulations will give an energy saving of approx. 17.500 GWh in Ireland in 2030.
