ENERGY STAR is a voluntary program administered jointly by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA administers specifications related to electronic products and the Department of Energy administers a variety of specifications including light bulbs. The goal of the program is to promote energy efficient products in homes, offices and schools. The basis of the program is that the ENERGY STAR program (ENERGY STAR) and industry negotiate product specifications for various classes of products. Products that meet the energy efficiency specifications may display the ENERGY STAR label on the product and packaging. The label informs consumers who are choosing between products that a labeled product is more energy efficient than a non-labeled product.

To date, the ENERGY STAR program covers 38 product types and has 1,600 "Manufacturing Partnerships" with businesses that have shipped more than 630 million ENERGY STAR qualified products since the program’s inception. In the electronics arena, under the ENERGY STAR program manufacturers have signed Memoranda of Understanding ("MOUs") with EPA for several products: PCs and monitors (1992); printers (1993); fax machines (1994); scanners and multifunction devices (1997); TVs and VCRs (1998); consumer audio and DVD products (1999); set-top boxes (2000); telephony products (2001).
