TV Sets

 

Target Scope


Cathode ray tube TV sets (CRT TV sets), liquid crystal display TV sets (LCD TV sets), or plasma TV sets that run on alternating current, except the following:

1) ones for industrial use,

2) ones of CRT type compatible with multiscan whose horizontal frequency is over 33.8 kHz,

3) ones for travelers from overseas,

4) ones of rear projection type,

5) ones whose TV receiver size is 10 type, 10 V type or smaller,

6) ones of wireless type,

7) computer display units having a TV broadcast receiving function, or

8) ones with liquid crystal panel that do not use a direct-view type backlight.

 

Energy Consumption Efficiency


Energy consumption efficiency shall be annual energy consumption (kWh/year) measured with the assumption that TV sets are in active for 4.5 hours per day and in standby for the rest of the day.
For LCD TV sets and plasma TV sets, if EPG (electronic program guide) is to be acquired while they are in standby, EPG-acquiring energy consumption based on EPG acquisition hours shall be taken into account in calculating the energy consumption efficiency.)

 

Categories & Target Standard Values


In the target fiscal year and each subsequent fiscal year, for each category, the weighted average value obtained by weighting energy consumption efficiency with shipment volume shall not be above than the target standard value which is a weighted average value obtained by weighting standard energy consumption*1 with shipment volume.

*1: Values obtained from the standard energy consumption calculation formulas and rounded to the nearest integers.
