Presentation of Consortium
  • Ad hoc WG meetings will be open to all
    stakeholders (industry, NGOs, Member States, etc)
  • The project website will contain all relevant
    information, documents and deliverables in order
    to allow the project team to follow the progress
    of the study
  • The website will also welcome the active
    participation from other stakeholders providing a
    registration link for stakeholders interested
    in the study and/or in engaging in the
    consultation by responding to questionnaires
    and/or participation at stakeholder meetings
  • Comments already received from stakeholders
  • Mr. Arno Dermutz - VKI - Austrian Consumer
    Association, Ecolabel
  • Suzanna Heutling - Federal Environment Agency,
    Ecodesign, Environmental Labelling,
    Environmentally Friendly Procurement

Why a Stakeholder Consortium?
  • The Eco-Lighting project team believes that
    ECOLABEL and GPP should be brought closer to the
    attention of all relevant parties already in the
    drafting process.
  • The stakeholder consortium will take up the
    criteria revision in a practical and neutral way
    and will be able to propose a workable, overall
    agreed and supported criteria catalogue.

10
Project Scope 
  • Under Article 7 of the EU Ecolabel Regulation
    (66/2010)
  • Following consultation of the EU Ecolabeling
    Board
  • the Commission,
  • Member States competent bodies and
  • other stakeholders
  • may initiate and lead the development or revision
    of EU Ecolabel criteria
  • The Eco-Lighting project will develop an evidence
    base from which Ecolabel and GPP criteria for
    light sources will be revised. The study will
  • identify the market characteristics and
    technology, and trends
  • estimate the relevant environmental impacts
    associated with the life cycle of the products
    and the life cycle costs
  • quantify the environmental improvement potential
    and the associated costs and
  • develop Ecolabel and GPP criteria.

11
Alignment of ECOLABEL and GPP related activities
  • On 20 December 2011, the Commission adopted its
    proposals to modernize the procurement
    directives the public procurement directive
    proposal, far from defining what is green or
    sustainable, is focused on simplification/flexib
    ilisation of rules and market access for SMEs.
  • In January 2012, European Commission just
    published Delivering more Sustainable
    Consumption and Production, a public
    consultation concerning, between others, the
    Green Public Procurement issue, which will be
    open until the 3rd of April 2012.
  • Possible scenario
  • Option 1 - revision of existing GPP criteria for
    product groups, maintaining the political target
    of 50 use of GPP,
  • or instead
  • Option 2 Legislative measures The legislative
    measures could include the setting a mandatory
    target for the uptake of GPP at EU level

12
Alignment of ECOLABEL and GPP related activities
  • Any GPP criteria established two sets of
    criteria
  • A core criteria are those suitable for use by any
    contracting authority across the Member States
    and address the key environmental impacts. They
    are designed to be used with minimum additional
    verification effort or cost increases
  • A comprehensive criteria are for those who wish
    to purchase the best environmental products
    available on the market. These may require
    additional verification effort or a slight
    increase in cost compared to other products with
    the same functionality.

13
Task definition
  • Task 1 - Product group definition the scope of
    product group will be defined according to
    standards or legislation and including
    environmental criteria.
  • Task 2 - Economic and market analysis this
    section will aim updating some basic market data,
    to highlight the share of lamps. In particular,
    it will give an overview of product stock, annual
    sales, market shares and user behavior.
  • Task 3 - Technical analysis (including BAT/BNAT)
    this section will aim defining the available
    technologies and production methods, to assess if
    the existing criteria have been overcome by
    technological improvements, and if some new
    requirements need to be tightened. This task also
    needs to extend to scrutinize the relevance of
    the current criteria and to analyze obstacles for
    applying the current criteria catalogue.
  • Task 4 - Policy impact and sensitivity analysis
    as the development of the EU Ecolabel criteria
    aims at harmonizing the existing schemes, an
    analysis of the main national and international
    schemes covering the product group under study
    will be conducted in order to see which aspects
    they are covering. It aims analyzing the existing
    EU and some specific national legislations as
    well as BAT documents influencing the sector, to
    assess if new mandatory requirements have been
    introduced, and if the criteria are, at least, as
    strict as the current legislation is.

14
Task definition
  • Task 5 - Draft criteria proposal and technical
    background report following the publication of
    the preliminary report, a proposal for a draft
    criteria and a technical report in support of the
    proposal will be established. The preferred
    approach in this regard is to take into account
    prominently consumers' demands related to
    different product groups and to ensure that
    eligibility is limited to the best 10 - 20 of
    the products in the market. In so far a certain
    dynamic in the criteria catalogue will be
    required, which will result in a review interval
    that is based on the technical improvement of the
    product group and regular evaluation of market
    intelligence. The aim of this activity is the
    revision of the Commission Decision 2011/331/EU
    criteria for the light sources product group. All
    the comments and proposals emerged on the
    Preliminary Report will be included in the
    Background Document, which is used as technical
    support to the Draft Criteria Proposal that will
    be illustrated during the 2nd AHWG.
  • Task 6 - Final report and manuals The Final
    Report, containing the information and the
    conclusions and the Final Criteria Proposal, will
    be the main outcome of this task. The Final Draft
    Criteria Proposal will be then presented to the
    EUEB. After the approval of the criteria proposal
    by the EUEB the Eco-label Users manual for the
    applicant will be prepared.

16
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 1
  • Product group definition
  • Focus on retail and domestic market is discussed,
    as there is a lack of overlap in the concept
    between ECOLABEL and GPP
  • As for GPP the tertiary applications are to be
    included
  • Possible answer is to start with domestic market
    and further down include professional
    applications
  • The scope inclusion of luminaires is guided by
    the agreed lamp luminaire definition in
    Ecodesign, but scope definition is part of the
    project deliverables
  • Scope needs to become a workable balance of the
    different criteria, no overwheliming preference
    of energy effciency

17
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 1
  • It is concluded that
  • the scope is technology agnostic as well as
    fitting agnostic for ECOLABEL, enabling the
    different technologies to be eligible for the
    ECOLABEL in terms of a best in class approach.
    For GPP requirements this agnostic approach will
    not be applicable
  • the minimum requirement of energy class A and
    beyond is to be maintained, resuting in the
    factual exclusion of Halogen technology
  • the scope should include CFLi as such, based on
    thorough life cycle assessment, a focus on Hg
    would be too limited, as a holistic evaluation
    needs to be the basis for eligibility
  • as for the scope limitation to domestic or the
    extesion to tertiary applications related to
    GPP further guidance from DG ENV is to be seeked
  • Subgroup task 1 Kees van Meerten, Otmar Franz,
    Zoltan Pilter, Chiara Briatore/Juergen Sturm

18
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 2
  • Economic and market analysis
  • Based on the scoping, data is to be collected on
  • general European market volume on LED, CFLi
  • exisiting studies to be used, as well as ELC
    statistics, use UK data on consumer behaviour
  • Action
  • companies and JRC to share available data with
    ELC Secretariat to compile and anonimize input
  • as for input related to user behaviour
    additional input from BEUC will be necessary
  • Subgroup task 2 Chiara Briatore, JRC, IPTS,
    Peter Hunt, Tom Lock

19
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 3
  • Technical analysis
  • To decide which parameters to be measured
  • Level of detail, production methods cannot be
    discussed
  • Add technology roadmap to anticipate the
    technological general development in order to
    take into account the future development of
    criteria
  • Benchmark existing criteria against technological
    development
  • Technical analysis needs to take into account
    that target audience is not always technical
    expert level, but MS administration
  • Life cycle assessment to be carried out under
    this agenda point
  • Task 3 and task 5 are to be combined from the
    beginning of the project In order to avoid double
    work and to ensure the diligent translation of
    the technical preparation into the criteria
    setting
  • Subgroup task 3 Nils Borg, Kees van Meerten,
    Otmar Franz, James Hooker, Zoltan Pilter

20
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 4
  • Policy impact and sensitivity analysis
  • Develop overview of existing legislation
  • JRC has carried out this work for GPP part
    already, get in touch with Consultants that
    carried out the preparatory study for the
    current criteria catalogue
  • Clarify the reading of Task 4 as for the
    strictness of legislation only related to
    mandatory requirements, or related to existing
    ECOLABEL criteria
  • Remark the aim is to create workable criteria
    it could mean also less stringent criteria
  • Subgroup task 4 Paolo Bertoldi, Michel
    Quicheron, Chiara Briatore, Renata Kaps

21
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 5
  • Draft criteria proposal and technical background
    report
  • Translation into Legal language to take into
    account already developing task 3
  • Drafting of the criteria (Ecolabel and GPP )
    could now split into two parallel task forces to
    be decided after clarification from Commission on
    GPP scope
  • Subgroup task 5 to be defined

22
Task allocationMeeting feedback Task 6
  • Final report and manuals
  • It is a procedure description on how to use
    Ecolabel and GPP for users and authorities (tasks
    3 and 5 summary)
  • Subgroup task 6 Juergen Sturm, DG Environment

23
Project Outline
  • The duration of the project will be approximately
    15 months.
  • Kick-off meeting 16th January 2012
  • One month after publication of the preliminary
    report, the 1st AD Hoc Working Group meeting will
    be held in Brussels (around month 8 September
    2012).
  • A first version of draft criteria should be
    published around month 8 on the website.
  • One month after publication of the revised draft
    criteria proposal, the 2nd working group meeting
    should be held in Brussels (around month 12
    January 2013).
  • The final draft criteria will be published on the
    website (around month 14) and provided to the
    European Commission and EUEB for further
    consideration and, if so decided, the relevant
    administrative process and as out in the Ecolabel
    Regulation.

24
Questionnaire
  • As preparation for the consultation, a
    questionnaire for gathering information on
    economic and market data as well as user behavior
    will be sent to stakeholders mid February 2012
  • The questionnaire seeks information, views and
    comments on the following
  • Product definition
  • Economic and market data
  • Aspects of, and trends in, product design and
    user behavior.
  • The draft preliminary report will be published on
    the Eco-Lighting website around 6 months after
    project start. Stakeholders should have 1 month
    for comments on the report.
  • Comments collected through the online
    consultation as well as the final research tasks
    should be published in the preliminary report on
    the website around 7 months after project start.

25
Eco-LightingWebsite
  • In order to engage all relevant stakeholders an
    independent product website has been created
  • www.eco-lighting-project.eu
  • The website will contain all relevant
    information and deliverables in order to allow
    the project team to follow the progress of the
    study.
  • The website will also welcome the active
    participation from other stakeholders
    providing a registration link for
    stakeholders interested in the study and/or in
