Call for Manufacturer Updates: FEMP Standby Power Data Center Product Lists
March 25, 2010
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) issues this call for manufacturer updates surrounding its Standby Power Data Center product lists.
The FEMP Standby Power Data Center product lists detail how much standby power electronic products consume. This helps Federal agencies comply with purchasing requirements surrounding low standby power use and energy efficiency.
Standby power is the power consumed when in the lowest power-consuming mode. This often occurs when a product is switched off but still plugged into an outlet.
Quarterly, FEMP asks electronic product manufacturers to review the Standby Power Data Center lists for accuracy to ensure Federal agencies receive the most up-to-date product information possible. Manufacturers that submitted products to FEMP will receive an e-mail with a list of their products and a request to respond with updates to their list. This process is set to begin in April.
