They are talking about government standards in Europe much like our EnergyStar program here.

"40% energy rating, which essentially means it is 40% more energy efficient than comparable 'A' rated dryers.": Bosch Dryer

Not to say this is the dryer to get or not...

Some unusual and interesting washers and dryers...

The next worthy challenge is the dryer duct. Through the floor wooden is our option.
Thus:
Out the back of the dryer (south) > down > Towards the north > termination.
Ponder-able are the details. Pulling out the dryer, not using much if any flex duct, not taking up much room behind the dryer, ease of cleaning etc.
Seem like straight metal 4" duct for the north run and a louvered termination to keep birds and animals and drafts out are worth considering.
I have been wondering about what to have for a port in the floor?
A dryerbox might help as it might allow more room for a transition from south to down to north but that might require flex duct to allow the dryer to pull out.
The other idea was use a 45 degree corner (south and down) and a 45 degree corner (down and north) and move the washer out to get to the dryer duct to connect and disconnect to move the dryer.

Online I did not find much to create a finished (something other than a crudely cut hole) port through the floor. There is the dryerdock but everything else seemed to assume would terminate the second you made it through the wall or floor.

Here in the rain forest (80 inches a year average) we use a drying rack so we can move it in and out at a moments notice. But there are those times of year a dryer would nice as it can be cloudy for long periods of time. Even the drying rack can get moldy if one is not careful.

Natural gas is not an option here. I was not sure if there was new technology like "condensing" or something that raised the bar a little. Hard to imagine that drying clothes could not be made more efficient in one way or another.
