Call for Manufacturer Updates: FEMP Standby Power Data Center Product Lists

July 1, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) is updating the product lists posted at its Standby Power Data Center.

To help Federal agencies comply with low standby power purchasing requirements, the FEMP Standby Power Data Center lists how much standby power products use. Standby power is the power consumed when in the lowest power-consuming mode, which often occurs when a product is switched off but still plugged into an outlet.

Manufacturers provide FEMP standby power data for their products, which are compiled into lists within the Standby Power Data Center. 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. This quarterly process is set to begin in July.

Manufacturers interested in providing product data for FEMP-designated product categories should contact fempstandbypower@ee.doe.gov.
