ITeCons in co-promotion with CeNTI has developed a project denominated “Promoção da Etiquetagem Energética de Produtos” – PEEP, with the participation of ADENE – Agência da Energia, and has been concluded on June 2015. This project had the objective of developing an energy labeling system for non-regulated products, namely thermal insulation/thecnical mortar, bricks and blocks for masonry application and coatings. This system has the advantage of allowing the comparison between energy performance of different products of the same product family, facilitating the product choice that promote higher savings in energy resources, responding to the demand of actual European legislation (EU Directive 2010/30/UE).
The experimental phase of the energy performance simulators has been launched, which are available in the website of the Sistema de Etiquetagem Energética de Produtos in www.seep.pt
These simulators have the objective of giving information to the manufactures regarding the process of energy labelling, as well as allowing the manufactures to test their products in order to know their respective energy classification. In this phase, the use of these simulators doesn’t have any associated cost to users nor is there any restriction in terms of the number of evaluations a user perform.
The project was developed under the Sistema de Apoio a Ações Coletivas (SIAC) program financed by the Programa Operacional Fatores de Competitividade (COMPETE) under the Quadro de Referência Estratégico Nacional (QREN).
