A New Energy Star... in 2007

Washington, D.C. does not come to mind when most of us think about innovations in computer technology. Still, U.S. government programs and regulations do have a real impact on the PC industry, and smart industry participants keep an eye on relevant intiatives from D.C. It is precisely for this reason that over 60 PC industry representatives gathered in the U.S. capitol on March 15 to dicusss the Preliminary Draft for the revision of the Energy Star computer specification with the U.S. Environment Protection Agency. Many "stakeholders" in the industry were invited.

We associate the EPA with policing toxic waste dumping by big industrials, creating rules to protect endangered species and wetlands, or enacting regulations to deal water purity issues. The fact is that the EPA mandate to "protect human health and the environment" in the US theoretically covers virtually every arena of human activity. The EPA has long been involved in setting regulations to reduce pollution and improve energy conservation. Energy Star has been a primary program for encouraging energy efficient products since its introduction in 1992.
