The State Energy Efficiency Agency of Ukraine has developed a draft government decree "On approval of the Technical Regulations on Ecodesign Requirements for Solid Fuel Boilers.
The objective is to regulate the ecodesign requirements for solid fuel boilers in accordance with the updated EU legislation, in particular, Commission Regulation (EU) No. 2015/1189 of April 28, 2015.
Thanks to this, it is expected to achieve the main goal - to ensure the improvement of the energy and environmental characteristics of solid fuel boilers.
The agency believes that as a result of the adoption of the new regulation, the most energy-intensive goods and goods with the greatest negative impact on the environment will be gradually ousted from the market; the number of energy efficient products on the market has been increased; eliminated barriers to trade between Ukraine and the EU; reduced national energy consumption and emissions.
In turn, Ukrainian manufacturers of boiler equipment will be able to increase their competitiveness and export their products to the EU markets.
After the adoption of the regulation, importers will be obliged to import into the Ukrainian market only those solid fuel boilers that meet the requirements of the technical regulation on ecodesign.
