SEAD’s Global Efficiency Medal Competition for TVs

The Global Efficiency Medal competition is part of the SEAD Initiative’s ambitious efforts to reduce energy use on a global scale. Televisions account for 3 to 4 percent of global residential electricity consumption. In the first SEAD competition for flat-panel televisions, held in 2012, SEAD global award-winning products were 33-44% more efficient than televisions with similar technology.
