Boiler Efficiency Directive

The Boiler Effeciency Directive is a New Approach Directive relating to the efficiency requirements for new hot-water boilers fired with liquid or gaseous fuels. The associated UK legislation is the Boiler (Efficiency) Regulations 1993 (SI 1993/3083), amended by the Boiler (Efficiency) (Amendment) Regulations 1994 (SI 1994/3083).

The Directive forms part of the European Union’s SAVE programme (Specific Actions for Vigorous Energy Efficiency) and is concerned with improving energy efficiency and the subsequent reduction in the emissions of carbon dioxide from standard, low temperature and gas condensing, series produced boilers that have outputs in the range 4 to 400 kW.

The Regulations specify minimum levels of efficiency that new hot water boilers sold in the United Kingdom must operate at whilst running at full load or part load conditions.
