Ecodesign Preparatory Study for Batteries
The Ecodesign Directive establishes a framework for setting requirements for energy-related products with the aim of ensuring their free movement within the internal market of the European Union.
Rechargeable electrochemical batteries are the first product to be the subject of a Preparatory Study, which is not included in the Working Plan. However, due to its actuality, the European Commission has highlighted the need for a Preparatory Ecodesign Study on "batteries". This study will examine the feasibility of Ecodesign requirements for this product group. Thereby, the focus is set on batteries for automotive and stationary applications.
