The chart shows a comparison of the electric power consumption of dishwashers, washing maschines, fridge-freezers, and tumble dryers. The values for 2015 are based on appliances with efficiency class A+++. It is clear that a savings potential of 15 to 40 percent still exists. For example, a 2015 washing machine uses 40 percent less electricity and 15 percent less water on average than a 2009 washing machine.

Information and ideas:
Apart from using state-of-the art technology, people can also save energy when washing dishes, washing and drying clothes, and cooking through energy-aware behavior. What options are there?
