The talks on domestic appliances – fridges, freezers, dishwashers and washing machines, in particular – will be informed by an ‘Omnibus Study’ produced for the Commission, which shows the potential for future performance improvements.

A consultation will also take place on possible options for addressing machine tools, including a points system for energy efficiency improvements and a voluntary industry initiative. A further meeting will discuss industrial ovens and furnaces.
