Cooking appliances such as cooker hoods,ovens, hobs and range hoods, are subject to EU energy labelling and ecodesign requirements. By switching to one of the most energy efficient electric ovens, you can save up to £200 over 15 years. With more efficient cooking appliances, Europe will also be able to save around 1% of the annual energy consumed by households by 2030. This means around 2.7 million tonnes of CO2 avoided annually by 2030 – about the annual emissions of four medium size power plants.
Microwave ovens, outdoor cooking appliances and grills are excluded from these requirements.
