ENERGY STAR Label Needs to Assure Superior Energy Conservation Performance, A Summary Report

This Report (No. 11-P-0010) dated October 28, 2010, by the Environmental Protection Agencies Office of the Inspector General finds that the EPA’s implementation of the ENERGY STAR program has become inconsistent with the program’s authorized purpose: to achieve environmental benefits by identifying and promoting energy-efficient products and practices that meet the highest energy conservation standards. We believe the ENERGY STAR program has sought to maximize the number of qualified products available at the expense of identifying products and practices that maximize energy efficiency.
