The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) applauded the enactment of H.R. 6, the "Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007," passed by the Congress and signed into law earlier today by President Bush. The Act contains energy saving measures important to consumers and the consumer electronics industry including provisions for energy use disclosure, standby power consumption, and external power supplies, also known as AC power adapters.

 

"This law finally puts in place a national energy efficiency standard for external power supplies, based largely on CEA's proposals," said Douglas Johnson, CEA's senior director of technology policy. "Until now, there has been a state-by-state, patchwork approach to standards for external power supplies, which is a very inefficient way to achieve energy efficiency," he said.

The new law also includes a provision that requires the Federal Trade Commission, in consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, to prescribe disclosure requirements for the energy use of TVs, personal computers, cable and satellite set-top boxes, stand-alone digital video recorders (DVRs), and personal computer monitors. 

H.R. 6 also includes a provision supported by CEA which strengthens the U.S. Department of Energy's consideration and treatment of standby power, or the use of electricity when a product is not in its active or on-mode.
