On 7 December, the Commission finalised its Working Plan for 2012 – 2014 under the EU’s Eco-design Directive. The Working Plan sets out the energy-related product groups which will be considered “priorities” for the adoption of eco-design requirements. The indicative list sets out 12 broad product groups to be considered during 2013 and 2014, including window products, steam boilers, power cables, enterprises' servers, data storage and ancillary equipment, smart appliances/meters and water-related products.
