One of the main goals of the ENERGY STAR program is to develop performance-based specifications that determine the most efficient products in a particular category. Products that meet these specifications earn the ENERGY STAR label.
ENERGY STAR specifications are then periodically revised to ensure relevancy under current market conditions. EPA and DOE strive to make certain that specifications differentiate the most efficient products and move the market toward more energy-saving designs.
ENERGY STAR has suspended specifications for the following products:
Battery Chargers External chargers used for products like power tools, yard care equipment and small household appliances, etc.
Displays Includes products such as computer monitors, digital picture frames, and professional signage.
Imaging Equipment Includes products such as copiers and fax machines, digital duplicators, mailing machines, and printers, scanners and all-in-ones.
