The graphic below shows Energy Forward electronics and appliances as compared with all electronics and appliances.
To be labeled Energy Forward, a TV model must be found on the current ENERGY STAR Version 4.1 Qualifying Products List and must also meet the ENERGY STAR VERSION 5.1 On Mode Power Consumption requirements below:
|Screen Area||Maximum On Mode Power Consumption
(Area (A) expressed in in2
|Maximum On Mode Power Consumption
(Area (A) expressed in cm2
|A < 275 in2 (1774 cm2)||Pmax = 0.130 * A + 5||Pmax = 0.020 * A + 5|
|275 <= A <= 1068 in2 (6890 cm2)||Pmax = 0.084 * A + 18||Pmax = 0..013 * A + 5|
|A > 1068 in2 (6890 cm2)||Pmax = 108||Pmax = 108|
Pmax = maximum allowable On Mode power consumption
A = viewable screen area of the product, calculated by multiplying the viewable image width by the viewable image height
Note: To be Energy Forward, TVs are not required to meet the Download Acquisition Mode Requirements for ENERGY STAR VERSION 5.1. Models must have a diagonal screen size greater than 10 inches in order to be listed.
