CEA Praises New Energy Star Specs
The Consumer Electronics Association last week came out in favor of the new Energy Star specification for televisions.
“The consumer electronics industry supports voluntary, market-oriented programs such as Energy Star that drive energy efficiency without harming innovation or impeding product convergence,” the group’s senior director of technology policy, Doug Johnson, said as part of the announcement. “With the new Energy Star TV specification now in effect, consumers focused on reducing energy use and their carbon footprint can choose from the latest Energy Star-compliant TV models during the holiday shopping season.”
The specs went into effect Nov. 1.
