Closing the Reality Gap

The Smart Testing of Energy Products (STEP) project, carried out by Topten.eu, CLASP, ECOS and EEB, has produced a report focusing on 18 months of research into the test standards of three popular consumer products covered by the energy label scheme – dishwashers, refrigerators and televisions. The study found that the test standards, when used for the declaration of energy-performance of these products, do not always reflect typical consumer usage and technological developments.
