1 Energy Star and Government Purchasing Craig Hershberg, EPA Jeff Harris, LBNL Power Supplies Workshop San Francisco, CA January 14, 2002

2 Overview Energy Star –about the label –relevance to this workshop –International activities Government Purchasing –government as a market-leader –energy-efficient purchasing policies –Status of Executive Order

3 Government as a Market Leader Feds = world’s biggest customer (>$10 B/year for energy-using products) State/local agencies together add ~4x federal purchasing power Make (better) use of $ already being spent Create business advantage for efficient products + new technology Common efficiency criteria = buyer-led market transformation

4 Estimated Energy Savings, 2010 (Federal total = $224 M/year)

5 Federal Purchasing Policies “Agencies shall select, where life-cycle cost- effective, ENERGY STAR® and other...products in the upper 25 percent of energy efficiency as designated by FEMP.” Executive Order (1999) and FAR Chapter 23 (2001) “Each agency …shall purchase products that use no more than one watt in their standby power consuming mode [or] …products with the lowest standby power wattage …” Executive Order (2001)

6 Targeting Energy-Efficient Products Significant energy use Volume of government purchasing Potential energy and cost savings Method for energy testing and rating Efficiency data available –product lists –ratings or labels –“quality-mark” (Energy Star™) Multiple suppliers Consistency with other programs (utility rebates, industry initiatives, etc.)

7 Energy Star™ and DOE/FEMP Efficiency Recommendations Non-residential lighting Electric motors and transformers Non-residential heating and cooling equipment Office equipment Residential HVAC, appliances, lighting Water-saving devices Roofing and windows Commercial food service [in preparation] Low standby power products - New

8 Products with Standby Power Computers & Office Equipment Phone Equipment (powered, cell, cordless) TV, VCR, DVD, Audio Major Appliances –Room AC –Clothes washer, Dishwasher –Microwave Other –Ceiling fans w/remote –Portable power tools –Desktop halogen lamp –Exercise equipment

9 Typical Energy Savings: Low Power Standby Personal Computer Computer Monitor Printer Printer (no off switch) Fax Copier Copier (no off switch) Powered telephone Cell phone Cordless phone TV VCR TV/VCR Compact audio system Room air conditioner Clothes washer Dishwasher Microwave Ceiling fans w/remote Portable power tools Desktop halogen lamp Exercise equipment Savings/unit (kWh/year) Energy Star Savings (kWh)Additional Standby Savings (kWh)

10 Basic Approach Build on and reinforce Energy Star Public meeting (10/01); industry input Product list - data from manufacturers Disseminate information to federal purchasers (and others) –supply agencies (GSA, DLA) –private vendors Web site:
