Tougher efficiency standards mooted for display refrigeration on ECA scheme

Carbon Trust undertakes new research into refrigerated displays cabinets in light of F-gas and ecodesign regulations and seeks industry’s input into how RDCs are treated on ECA scheme in future

The Carbon Trust is carrying out research to examine the continued need to support Refrigerated Display Cabinets under the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) scheme. The ECA scheme provides businesses with enhanced tax relief for equipment purchases that meet published energy-saving criteria.

Display cases have been listed on the Energy Technology List - the list of products demonstrated to meet the published criteria, since 2003, and the Trust is now reviewing whether the criteria should be tightened to stimulate further improvements in the efficiency of products on the market. The Trust says the review will take into account the impact of increasing EU regulation in areas such as ecodesign, ecolabelling and F-gases.

The Carbon Trust manages the Energy Technology List, in partnership with consultant Jacobs, on behalf of the government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).

The ETL team at the Carbon Trust wants to hear from manufacturers, distributors, consultants or end users who would like to contribute to the study: Telephone: 0300 330 0657 or email: ECAquestions@carbontrust.co.uk.
