Samsung Electronics America's DV457 clothes dryer was awarded the 2013 Energy Star Emerging Technology Award for advanced dryers.

The award recognizes products that are at the forefront of energy conservation and climate protection. It is the first time that a clothes dryer has garnered the award.

"Over the past decade we have seen collective progress with energy efficiency across all appliance categories, except clothes dryers--but today that all changes," says EPA's Peter Banwell, Director of Product Marketing. "EPA is pleased that Samsung has designed a dryer that meets EPA's difficult to reach efficiency targets. We look forward to working with Samsung to promote this award-winning product, which will save consumers energy and protect the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions."

The award-winning appliance uses 36% less energy than conventional dryers, which Samsung estimates may translate to savings of as much as $635 in electricity and 9,000 lbs of CO2 emissions over the life of the product. When combined with a matching clothes washer, the WF457, the Smart Grid-ready laundry pair may save up to $3,978 in lifetime energy savings. Samsung believes this makes it the most energy efficient laundry appliance pair in the industry.
