Possible horizontal Ecodesign measure for internal combustion engines

EGMF Position paper on possible horizontal Ecodesign measure for internal combustion engines

EGMF together with the engine manufacturers industry (Euromot), the construction machinery industry (CECE), the agricultural machinery industry (CEMA) and the material handling industry (FEM) opposed a potential future horizontal energy efficiency requirement on internal combustion engines. Indeed, such a measure is unfeasible considering the variety of types and power ranges of combustion engines installed in non-road mobile machinery. In addition, the pressure imposed by other upcoming regulatory requirements on engines renders such a measure inappropriate. Finally, the importance of energy efficiency in manufacturers’ R&D makes such a measure unnecessary.
