Converting water consumption into litres per year from new EU energy labels

The following conversion factors may be used to convert the water consumption on new EU energy labels from litres per cycle (L/cycle) into litres per year (L/year):

Dishwasher: multiply water consumption figure on EU energy label by 208 (to go from L/cycle to L/year).

Washing machines: multiply water consumption figure on EU energy label by 220 (to go from L/cycle to L/year).

This follows equivalent guidance for converting energy consumption (see KBCN1462).
