The study will follow the MEErP. The Methodology for Ecodesign of Energy-related products (MEErP), as established in 2011 and complemented with material efficiency features in 2013, was developed to allow evaluating whether and to which extent various energy-related products fulfil certain criteria according to Article 15 and Annex I and/or II of the Ecodesign Directive that make them eligible for implementing measures. This methodology requires the contractor to carry out 7 tasks, ranging from product definition to policy scenario analysis.
The tasks in the MEErP entail:
Tasks 1 to 4 can be performed in parallel, whereas 5, 6 and 7 are sequential.
