Product development with Energy Star specs

Design to Energy Star specifications to certify energy savings during product development

One of the main goals of the ENERGY STAR program is to develop performance-based specifications that determine the most efficient products in a particular category. Products that meet these specifications earn the ENERGY STAR label.

To develop ENERGY STAR product specifications, EPA and DOE use a systematic process that relies on rigorous market, engineering, and pollution savings analyses as well as input from industry stakeholders. This process ensures that the ENERGY STAR:

  • identifies products where large gains in energy efficiency and pollution reduction can be cost-effectively realized
  • can play an influential role to expand the market for these products.

EPA and DOE continually develop new ENERGY STAR specifications to expand the program to new products. ENERGY STAR specifications are then periodically revised to ensure relevancy under current market conditions. EPA and DOE strive to make certain that specifications differentiate the most efficient products and move the market toward more energy-saving designs.

New Product Specifications in Development in 2007:

  • Commercial Dishwashers
  • Decorative Light Strings
  • Enterprise servers
  • Ice machines
  • Solid State Lighting (SSL) Luminaires
  • Water Heaters
