In a bid to further promote cheap energy efficiency, the European Commission has announced that televisions will be marked with a label indicating how much energy they consume.
The scheme will have to be approved by member states and the European Parliament and if approved, will represent the first time television manufacturers are obliged to declare the energy efficiency of their products using A-G ratings.
Ministers hope the requirement will result in more energy savings and reductions in carbon emissions.
According to the European Commission, an A-rated television can result in 35 euros (£30) in energy costs a year compared to a D-rated device. Furthermore, A-rated televisions should consume half of the electricity of C-rated ones.
Energy commissioner Gunther Oettinger commented: "Energy labels move the market towards highly energy-efficient products, which is a major contribution to reaching Europe's energy efficiency, competitiveness and climate change goals. At the same time, they save money for consumers."
