What is ETV?
Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is an independent third-party evaluation of climate and environmental technologies and products. The essence of ETV is to provide independent documentation of the efficiency of individual products.
ETV is a supplement to product certification or type approval, with special focus on innovative technologies and products.
ETV is carried out by independent verification centres and provides comparable and credible technology performance data.
The ETV centres aim to help society to choose and invest in technologies that reduce climate change and environmental effects, and to choose technologies to monitor these changes and effects.
EVT helps to reduce risks and skepticism related to investments in new and/or innovative technologies.
EVT helps companies to demonstrate the efficiency of these products and to increase market shares.
