Televisions Specification Version 9.0
The ENERGY STAR specification for Televisions is currently under revision. Materials related to this revision process are provided below. Stakeholders who received past communications related to development of Version 8.0 or previous versions will continue to receive updates on this development effort. To be added to the product development e-mail distribution list, please send your full contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has conducted round robin testing for several TVs in an effort to evaluate the within-lab variation (i.e., repeatability) and assess the between-lab consistency (i.e., reproducibility) of a new test method developed to measure the power consumption and dynamic luminance of TVs. DOE describes their results and conclusions in the report linked below.
The following links provide resources for stakeholders looking to further explore the test method proposed for use in ENERGY STAR Televisions Version 9.0 Draft 1 specification. As noted in the Draft 1 specification and linked documents, this test procedure continues to be refined. EPA will reference the final procedure in the Version 9.0 specification, which will be the official source regarding how an ENERGY STAR TV is to be tested for purposes of certification.
Stakeholders are welcome to provide comments on this methodology to email@example.com.
This video demonstrates the testing of a TV as proposed in the ENERGY STAR Televisions Version 9.0 Draft 1 specification. EPA is posting this video to provide stakeholders with a visual representation of the Agency’s proposal. As noted in the draft specification, this test procedure continues to be refined. EPA will reference the final procedure in the Version 9.0 specification which will stand as official source regarding how an ENERGY STAR TV is to be tested for the purposes of certification.
