As the President’s plan notes, SEAD is helping accelerate the global adoption of standards and practices for appliances and equipment that could reduce annual electricity demand by the equivalent of 650 mid‐sized coal-fired power plants by 2030.
The SEAD Global Efficiency Medal competition for displays will recognize the most energy-efficient computer monitors on the market around the world as well as emerging technologies that have the potential to greatly reduce energy use in the future.
This global awards program encourages the production and sale of super-efficient televisions by identifying the most efficient products in three different size categories and four geographical regions.
The SEAD Global Efficiency Medal is awarded to products that demonstrate the greatest energy efficiency, with the first competition focusing on flat-panel televisions. Television manufacturers from across the globe will compete against one another in a competition based on the energy efficiency of their products.
