ICT’s Contributions to the Global Economy and Energy Efficiency • Creating new opportunities for the entire economy (e.g. electronic commerce) • Changing practices (e.g., telecommuting, videoconferencing) • Reducing environmental impact (e.g., U.S. Defense Department study reducing warehouses from 286 to 19)
ITI and Energy Efficiency • Example: ENERGY STAR™ • Case Studies in Collaboration • Net Benefits of Collaboration
ITI and ENERGY STAR • In 1992, ITI worked with US/EPA as a partner to develop ENERGY STAR specifications for computers and printers. • ITI helped convince Europe to join ENERGY STAR. • ITI is continuing to engage on specification development for existing and new product classifications.
Case Studies in Collaboration • Setting realistic, technically feasible goals for industry and government that allow manufacturers to continue to innovate and meet customer expectations. • Defining products and specifications. • Intersection of standards and voluntary activities. • Harmonization expands markets and increases competition. • Company Examples
Net Benefits of Collaboration • Consultation between industry and government throughout the process. • System-wide approach to development of specifications. • Review of products and practices.
