NCTA and the Consumer Technology Association presented 2 reports this week by the independent auditor D+R International regarding the implementation and execution of new energy conservation efforts. The reports said that American consumers saved $646mln in 2015 from energy efficient set-top boxes and that nearly 90% of the home Internet equipment that delivered broadband in 2015 met the new energy efficiency standards. Under The Voluntary Agreement for Ongoing Improvement to the Energy Efficiency of Set-Top Boxes signed by pay-TV providers in 2012, consumers have saved nearly $1.2bln in energy costs and 6.5 mln metric tons of CO2 emissions in the past 3 years. Overall, 86.9% of the reported units sold in 2015 met the energy efficiency standards, with 7 of the 11 signatories achieving the 90% commitment.
