Environmental Leader, a leading daily trade publication covering energy, environmental and sustainability news, presented its 2019 Project of the Year award to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) and NCTA – The Internet & Television Association for leading the voluntary agreement to increase the energy efficiency of consumer internet equipment. CableLabs played a leading role in researching and developing energy efficiency strategies and in supporting the ongoing implementation of the The Small Network Equipment (SNE) voluntary agreements. These voluntary agreements have saved more energy than the traditional regulation, and it is done more quickly as well, while still maintaining the flexibility of developing improved services and effectiveness for consumers.
In 2018, an independent audit showed the dramatic progress that has already been achieved under the agreement. The report also demonstrated the improvements in SNE efficiency even as consumers demand increasingly robust equipment to support higher-speed services, better Wi-Fi strength and more Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
The winners of the seventh annual Environmental Leader Awards were announced at the Environmental Leader & Energy Manager Conference in Denver, CO.
