Appliance maker Electrolux has won four of the European Commission's five energy efficiency awards, known as Energy+. The company was awarded for Europe's most energy efficient chest and upright freezers, tabletop refrigerator, and refrigerator with freezer compartment. This is the 5th consecutive year of recognition by the European Commission and leading National Energy Associations to the company for its drive to produce more energy efficient appliances.

Energy+, an initiative of the European Commission and 13 national energy and environmental agencies, was created in 1999 to promote the development and use of highly energy-efficient refrigerators and freezers throughout the European Union.

According to the European Union, Energy+ recognized appliances are required to be 25 to 40 percent more efficient than basic Class A models. Electrolux's winning models, were on average 47 percent more efficient. Further, winning appliances were additionally reviewed by the Energy+ organization for their ease of use, noise, low global warming potential, and market price.

"Efficient household appliances help reduce environmental and financial impact significantly," Viktor Sundberg, vice president Environmental & European Affairs at Electrolux states. "Electrolux has made great strides toward reducing energy and water consumption in appliances overall, and we continue to strive for even more efficient products every day."

In 1999, when the Commission presented its specifications to manufacturers, Electrolux was the only manufacturer who could present Energy+ qualifying products. In 2001, the company was also the first to win the award for two-door refrigerator-freezers. Presently, there are approximately 900 models from several manufacturers that meet the Energy+ criteria. No less than 400 of these are made by Electrolux.

"Meeting our consumers' needs is the key priority for Electrolux in the 21st century," states Wolfgang König, CEO of Electrolux Home Products Europe. "The Energy+ program has helped drive the company's ambition to boost environmentally sound products and reduce consumer energy costs during an appliance's lifecycle. As the industry leader, we will continue to challenge current boundaries of environmentally sound appliances to meet tomorrow's needs today."
