Today in Cleantech

Today, the electronics industry is keeping a close eye on a hearing on mandatory TV energy efficiency standards that is being held by the California Energy Commission. The Consumer Electronics Association has voiced its opposition, citing potential job losses and higher costs that will end up getting passed onto consumers. It will be interesting to watch this unfold since several of its members like Samsung (a maker of efficient LED-backlit TVs) can’t help but publicize their green credentials these days.
