ENERGY STAR Most Efficient 2016 Criteria

ENERGY STAR Most Efficient is a new program element to identify and advance highly efficient products in the marketplace. This effort identifies the most efficient products among those that qualify for the ENERGY STAR in particular product categories. Product categories were selected and recognition criteria were established to ensure that products that receive this recognition demonstrate efficiency performance that is truly exceptional, inspirational, or leading edge — consistent with the interests of environmentally-motivated consumers and early adopters.
