The ENERGY STAR Computers team met with stakeholders earlier this year to discuss desktop computer categorization for total energy consumption (TEC) limits as groundwork for ENERGY STAR Computers Version 8.0. Studies measuring the TEC for desktop and all-in-one computers have shown the importance of categorization in implementing appropriate energy consumption limits. Effectiveness of ENERGY STAR Computers’ current method for categorization, along with two possible alternatives, was discussed at the meeting.

Rapid growth in home automation and the Internet of Things (IoT) requires support from billions of sensors, actuators, and connectivity components powered by highly efficient offline converters with ultra-low standby power consumption.
Ecodesign regulation (EC) No 1275/2008 is under revision. This regulation aims to ensure the lowest possible energy use for small and large household appliances and electronic products in passive standby and off modes. Among the proposed changes is to lower the standby/off-mode requirement to 0.3 W from 0.5 W.
