About Energy Star Certified Energy Star
Energy Star is an energy saving program led by the US government that focuses on consumer electronics. The ENERGY STAR program was launched by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the US Department of Energy (DOE) in 1992 to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The plan was later adopted by Australia, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand and the European Union. The program is voluntary, and Energy Star standards are typically 20-30% more energy efficient than US federal standards. The earliest products that cooperated with this plan were mainly computer and other information appliances, and then gradually extended to motors, office equipment, lighting, home appliances and so on. Later it also expanded to buildings. The EPA has actively promoted the Energy Star Building Program since 1996. The EPA assists voluntary participants in evaluating the energy use of their buildings (including lighting, air conditioning, office equipment, etc.) and planning the building The energy efficiency improvement action plan and follow-up operation of the material, so some homes or industrial buildings that introduce new environmental protection concepts can also find the Energy Star logo.
A total of seven countries and regions around the world participate in the ENERGY STAR program promoted by the US Environmental Protection Agency, namely the United States, Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, and the European Union. Since 2001, an international ENERGY STAR program meeting has been held annually. There are now more than 30 categories of products included in this certification, such as household appliances, heating / cooling equipment, electronics, lighting products, etc. At present, the most popular products in the Chinese market are lighting products, including energy-saving lamps (CFL) , Lighting (RLF), traffic lights and exit lights.
