When and where to find APPLiA during the EU Sustainable Energy Week?

The biggest European event on renewables and sustainable energy is taking place on 19-21 June in Brussels, less than a month after the EU elections. APPLiA, representing the home appliance industry, will debate on essential topics, such as energy labelling, ecodesign and standardisation, and will shake up the format by giving the word to the youth.

Our Director General, Paolo Falcioni will kick-off with a debate in the “Ecodesign and energy labelling - better products, less energy, more sustainability” panel.

19 June 2019 | 16:00 - 17:30 | European Commission, Berlaymont, Walter Hallstein

The goal of the session would be to collect views on what strategic development should ecodesign and energy labelling pursue and how to tackle the identified challenges. Discussion themes will include amongst others: evolving policies in a fast-moving digitalised world, enhancing contributions to circular economy, examining the energy efficiency of systems in addition to the gains brought by stand-alone products.


On the next day, Michał Zakrzewski, Smart Living and Competitiveness Policy Director will be speaking about consumer relevant product testing standards during the “Ecodesign and energy labels: setting standards for consumers” session.

20 June 2019 | 11:00 - 12:30 | European Commission, Charlemagne, Mansholt

Discussions will outline the efforts currently undertaken to address these issues, what are the needs in terms of revised or new standards and the characteristics those need to obtain in order to be fit for purpose in the new Ecodesign and Energy Labelling realities, and serve the purpose of providing meaningful information to consumers.


Last but not least, keep our interactive stand  “Sustainable Energy in the language of Generation Z” as a dessert.

20 June 2019 | 9:00 - 12:30 | Residence Palace, Brussels

The power of digitalisation allows young people to share their position about the environment and to reach a countless number of people at an unprecedented speed. APPLiA wants to give the word to them and, with this aim, will invite to its stand a couple of young influencers. The stand will be an informal moment of exchange around sustainable energy – what we do, what we could do, what we think it is important to do - in the language of generation Z.
