The purpose of this report was to provide input to the European Commission on a few specific issues that arose in discussions at the Ecodesign Consultation Forum meeting held on July 5, 2011.
CLASP addressed the following issues that we felt would benefit from more detailed study:
- Why the Commission may consider adopting a halogen infrared reflective coating (IRC) regulatory level for low-voltage directional lamps at Stage 1;
- Why the Commission may consider adopting a premium IRC/LED standard for directional lamps at Stage 3;
- Why CLASP supports the Commission’s proposal of an efficiency requirement of 92.5% for halogen converters at Stage 1, and potentially a higher level at Stage 3;
- A global review of LED quality standards, to assist the Commission in its effort to define appropriate and proportionate requirements for Europe; and
- Why CLASP supports the Commission in maintaining Stage 3 of the regulation.
The report provides detailed discussion on these points.
This analysis was provided in support of the European Commission’s regulatory process on Lot 19 Part 2.It was prepared by Michael Scholand of N14 Energy and CLASP’s technical advisor Marie Baton in cooperation with eceee’s Executive Director, Nils Borg.
