Are you a manufacturer or supplier of energy-saving equipment?

Get your product listed on the Energy Technology List

The Energy Technology List (ETL) is a government-managed list of energy-efficient products. With more than 8,000 listed products, it is one of the world’s largest databases of top performing energy-saving products.

All products are verified as meeting higher energy efficient performance standards, typically in the top 25% of products available in the market.

Customers can quickly search products on the Energy Technology List and many of them use it as part of their procurement process for new capital equipment.

How the ETL supports businesses

The ETL helps organisations purchase energy efficient products by providing an up-to-date list of government verified products.1

The ETL has helped organisations choose the right energy efficient product for their operations since 2001. The service is well known to industrial technology manufacturers, many of whom have listed products. The ETL supports around £500m in energy efficient product sales each year.

How to get your products listed

You can apply here to have your energy efficient products listed on the ETL by following a few simple steps to make your online application. There is no cost to apply to have your products listed on the ETL.

Our application guidance note will take you through the process step-by-step. It is important that you first read the criteria for the technology category to check which is the best suited to your products and to understand what information needs to be provided for a successful product application.

The list is updated twice a month with products that meet their ETL technology criteria and have successfully passed the evaluation process. Over a period of approximately 3-4 years the criteria for each technology are updated to ensure performance thresholds are continually improved to attract the top 25% of products in the marketplace.

If you have products listed on the ETL that are no longer sold in the UK, please get in touch via to let us know.

Explaining the Energy Technology List to your customers

When explaining the benefits of purchasing ETL products to your customers, or adding information on your website and sales brochures, you may find the following particularly helpful:

Tips to get the most out of your qualifying products

  • Ensure your customers understand the meaning and value of the ETL (i.e. that products on the ETL meet high energy efficiency performance standards, typically the top 25% of products in the marketplace ).
  • Explain the energy savings and financial benefits (e.g. lower operating costs) to your customers from purchasing energy-efficient equipment that meets the ETL criteria.
  • Use the ETL Logo* when marketing your products.
  • Promote your products’ qualification for the ETL on marketing materials, company website, press releases and social media.
  • Further tips can be found here in the manufacturer’s toolkit.

*The logo should only be positioned alongside ETL eligible, approved and listed products.

Which technology groups does the ETL cover?


BEIS has worked with NBS to map the ETL product categories within the 56 technologies against the UNICLASS 2015 codes.

UNICLASS 2015 is a classification structure used to identify and manage aspects such as information, components, products and services throughout the lifecycle of a building asset. UNICLASS 2015 is managed and delivered by NBS and the use of the classification structure is a requirement for BIM Projects, as set out by the BS EN ISO 19650 series of standards.
