TVs Will Get Energy Efficiency Labels in 2011

tv-energy-label
Starting in the new year, TVs will be outfitted with Energy Guide stickers much like those on household appliances such as refrigerators or washers and www.smartersecurity.com dryers, allowing consumers to make energy efficient choices more easily.

The Federal Trade Commission is cialis en mexico requiring all TVs to bare the stickers, which will feature the canadian generic cialis estimated annual energy cost of the TV, with a scale comparing it to other TVs in the same size range.  The figures are based on a cost of 11 cents per kWh and five hours use per day.

The new requirement applies to all TVs sold in stores as of generic cialis overnight shipping January, but websites have until July 2011 to add the labels.

Wii Crushes Other Game Consoles in Energy Efficiency

wii-efficient
A new report from the Electric Power Research Institute looked at the energy consumption of the three most popular video game consoles -- the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3 -- and the Wii was far and away the most energy efficient, using one-sixth the http://operacijatrijumf.net/viagra-generico power used by the other two.

The researchers played one hour of Madden NFL 11 on each system and then recorded the power consumed.  The Wii used 13.7 watts, the Playstation used 84.8 watts and Xbox used 87.9 watts.  The reason for the huge disparity between the Wii and the other two is that the Playstation and Xbox feature much higher quality graphics and more powerful processors.

Over the course of a year where the http://www.eastgreenbushlibrary.org/canada-levitra-no-prescription user does some serious gaming (5 hours, 45 minutes a day), the Wii consumes energy equivalent to order viagra a flourescent light fixture, where the other two consume energy equivalent to a washing machine.

So, if you're currently in the market for a new game console and visit our site cialisbest cialis energy efficiency ranks higher on your required feature list than the quality of the graphics, the Wii is obviously the best choice.

Starbucks Saves Millions on Energy Bills with LED Lighting

On a light-by-light basis, changing from incandescent to LED only makes a tiny difference in energy consumption and cost, but when you're talking about retrofitting a large building like the Empire State Building or replacing bulbs in thousands of Starbucks stores, the energy savings can be huge.

That's just what Starbucks has found now that the replacing of incandescent and halogen lights in 7,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada has been completed.  The company's Director of cialis generic order online problem Environmental Impact said that the program is on target to cut lighting energy consumption by 80 percent.

The good folks at Greenbiz did the math and figured that each 1,000 square foot store was saving $600 a year and reducing CO2 emissions equivalent to 10 barrels of oil.  The lights also cut total store energy consumption by 7 percent.

LEDs were installed in the sitting and beverage areas where the color of the light was most important and CFL bulbs were installed in the rest of the store.  The energy and buy cheapest viagra cost savings calculated were for the LED lights alone.

Cloud Computing Could Slash Data Center Energy Use by Over One-Third

cloudes
As the energy used by data centers around the world rapidly grows, so do the emissions they're responsible for -- currently 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.  A new report issued by Pike Research indicates that cloud computing could make a huge dent in the energy used by data centers and the resulting emissions.

The study by Pike has some very positive figures.  Energy use by data centers could be reduced by 38 percent by 2020 if companies continue to switch over to cloud computing at the expected rate.  With that drop in energy use, emissions could be cut by 28 percent from 2010 levels.  Energy costs could drop from $23.3 billion in 2010 to $16 billion in 2020.

There's still a lot to figure out when it comes to the lowest propecia prices exact benefits of cloud computing though.  Greenpeace issued a report this year saying that emissions from cloud computing could triple by 2020, so the switch will need to very good site obtain viagra without prescription be combined with other energy-saving efforts. But it's clear that cloud computing is a far better than the current, server-heavy, power-hungry data center model.

New Database Rates Energy Efficiency of Ships

shippingefficiency
A new online database, ShippingEfficiency.org, gives efficiency and emissions ratings for 60,000 ships worldwide to push fleet owners to start using cleaner and more efficient ships.

The project was created by billionaire Richard Branson to empower exporters, importers and even cruise-vacation-goers to choose the most efficient ships to do business with.  The database lists engine size, type of buy canadian levitra online ship, energy efficient features, emissions and other information about each ship along with overall ratings based on those facts.

The builders of the database have great expectations for the project.  They expect it to reduce shipping CO2 emissions by as much as 25 percent.

The shipping industry has a very large carbon footprint and has been hard to regulate because shipping is a global business and buy viagra online viagra national or regional restrictions are hard to enforce.  The database is aiming to my921.ca solve the problem by putting the power in the hands of businesses and consumers to affect change, instead of governments.
