CEA Praises New Energy Law
The Consumer Electronics Association on Wednesday praised the passage of the energy bill that was signed by President Bush earlier this week. The new law, known as the “Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007,” is meant to encourage energy saving measures, which have become a high priority for the organization.
The new law, according to the New York Times, requires higher energy efficiency requirements, as well as stronger disclosure requirements for energy uses.
“This law finally puts in place a national energy efficiency standard for external power supplies, based largely on CEA’s proposals,” the industry group’s senior director of technology policy, Douglas Johnson, said in a statement issued by CEA. The group also expressed pleasure that the law requires disclosure, rather than “inflexible government mandates.”
