Award of the most energy efficient flat screen TVs in Europe of the first Salem global efficiency Medal “competition awarded Samsung and LG for the production of energy-efficient televisions in Europe. The global award promotes the production and the sale of particularly energy-efficient televisions and chooses the most energy-efficient products in three size categories and four geographical regions. Commercially available flat-screen TV in Europe Prize winners were announced at the award ceremony on Friday, August 31, 2012, at the IFA in Berlin. “” “” The SEAD global efficiency Medal “commercial flat panel TV is awarded in the following categories as follows: small” (less than 29 inches) to Samsung for the following product: Samsung UE26EH4000W medium “(29 to less than 42 inches) also on Samsung for the following product: Samsung UE40EH5000W large” (42 to 50 inches) to LG for the following product: LG 47LM670S are the regional winners in North America, India and Australia in the autumn of 2012 through press releases the each region announced. Finally, an international winner from all four regions is determined in each size category. The international awards ceremony will be at the annual of meeting of the clean energy Ministerial (CEM) held in the spring of 2013, to publicly announce the award-winning products. It is not about to reward a laboratory product, but a TV that actually are purchased on the European market from the consumer can.
“, says per-Anders Widell, Oberregierungsrat at the Ministry of enterprise, energy and communications in Sweden. “Nevertheless we are also interested in development to promote the technologies that have the potential to increase the energy efficiency of televisions in the near future.” If all televisions available on the European market would be as energy efficient as those who were awarded today, the energy savings in Europe would 18 trillion kilowatt hours per year according to estimates of the Swedish Energy Agency amount. Worldwide, the savings were at over 70 trillion kilowatt hours annually. This is equivalent to the electricity consumption in Denmark and New Zealand together, says Peter Baharuddin ned by the Swedish Energy Agency. We could observe drastic improvements in the energy efficiency of televisions in the last few years, but the award winners show that the potential is still large.” The first Salem global efficiency Medal “competition aimed at flat-screen TV. The next round will decorate computer screens and electric motors with large global energy consumption two product categories.
