I was noting yesterday that renewable energies are progressing in Europe. I wrote there that combined with energy efficiency measures, we could achieve a low carbon future.

These new regulations concern industrial motors, circulators found in heating systems, televisions, refrigarators and freezers. These are absolutely fantastic news.To the official press release :
