The European Commission has identified a need to systematically monitor and report on the impact of Ecodesign, Energy Labelling, Energy Star and Tyre Labelling measures, including potentially new forthcoming actions, with a view to improve its understanding of the impacts over time and its forecasting and reporting capacity.
The accounting covers projections for the period 2010-2050, with inputs going as far back as 1990 and earlier. Studies of 41 product groups, including 237 base cases, have been harmonised and complemented to fit the methodology. For the period up to 2025-2030 inputs were derived from the available studies. The period beyond 2025- 2030 is an extrapolation of the existing trend without any new measures, i.e. it is not in the scope of this study to develop new policies.

The Ecodesign Impact Accounting (EIA) is done annually. Here you will find the latest status, carried out by VHK for the European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy.
The Status Report is the main EIA document, containing full and detailed data and a description of the EIA-methodology. It is mainly organized per parameter, e.g. sales, stock, load, efficiency, energy, emissions, prices, expenses. The Status Report is intended for insiders/experts and for analysts requiring detailed figures.
The Overview Report addresses a wider, non-technical audience and aims at making the EIA data more easily accessible.
Presentation of key information and results of the EIA.
Excel with data used in the EIA status update, presented in a printable layout.
Special studies in 2016 were separately performed in addition to the main EIA. These are one-off studies that are not updated annually.
This report is an addition to the main Ecodesign Impact Accounting (EIA) of March 2016. It calculates the material consumption for the production of the 2010 sales and the 'installed stock'. The material inputs are a compilation of over 200 Bills of Materials (BOMs) generated in 40 Ecodesign preparatory studies that took place in the period 2006-2016.
This report covers the work presented in the Materials Report by inserting the material data, combined with EIA data in a standard EcoReport. The result is a single EcoReport for a fictitious average EIA product that has the same material and energy consumption as all EIA products together. Compared to the existing Materials Report and EIA-report it provides the Life Cycle Impacts and Costs of the combined EIA products, additional insight in the subdivision of environmental impacts over the various phases of product life, and additional information on waste streams and on emissions to water and air.
