Welcome to the website of the Ecodesign Preparatory Study on Compressors (ENER Lot 31).

The aim of the study is to provide the European Commission with a technical, environmental and economical analysis of compressors driven by electric motors, as required under Article 15 of the Directive 2009/125/EC on Ecodesign.

This website presents documents and other information related to the ongoing study for compressor (packages) for low pressure and oil free application ranges (study start 14 April 2015 / ongoing).

The final reports of the former study on compressor (packages) for the 'standard air' application range (start 6 March 2012, finalised 6 June 2014) are also still available.

Reports published for the studies are available on the Documents section of this website.
