EU refers to the EU27
Energy consumption of large appliances per dwelling
- EU households consumed around 50% more for small appliances in 2019 than in 2000 (1200 kWh/dwelling in 2019). On the opposite, specific consumption of large appliances has decreased by 24% between 2000 and 2019 thanks to labels and standards.
- Small appliances represent now the main share of appliances consumption: 61% of the specific consumption of appliances in 2019 compared to 45% in 2000.
- Energy efficiency of large electrical appliances continues to improve rapidly. However this effect does not counterbalance anymore the rapid growth of the consumption of small appliances.
