SEAD Global Efficiency Medals Awarded to World’s Most Energy Efficient TVs

December 03, 2012 by Jeff Shepard

The Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Global Efficiency Medal Competition places top-performing super-efficient products in the hands of early adopting consumers. Spurring innovation among manufacturers, the first competition identifies the most efficient flat-panel TVs in the world - in three different sizes - and recognizes one TV with the most efficient emerging technology globally.

SEAD Global Efficiency Winners:
* 22W on mode power - Samsung UN26EH4000F for small-size TVs (less than 29 inches)
* 43W on mode power - LG 47LM670S for large-size TVs (42 inches and above)
* 44W on mode power - Samsung UE40EH5000W UN40EH5000F for medium-size TVs (29 to less than 42 inches)

Emerging Technology Winner
LG 47-inch LED backlit LCD prototype TV
This television is 59% more efficient than commercially available televisions with comparable technology. It will be commercially available worldwide within the next two years.

SEAD will host an international awards ceremony in connection with the Clean Energy Ministerial meeting in early 2013 to distinguish the international winning product models. SEAD member governments are working with manufacturers, retailers, and other energy efficiency stakeholders to make it easy for consumers to identify these award winning products.
