 3. ENERGY STAR Computers Version 7 Effective Date Reminder
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) would like to remind stakeholders that the effective date for the Version 7 ENERGY STAR Computers Program Requirements is November 16, 2018 . On this date, only products certified to Version 7.0 or 7.1 and submitted by EPA-recognized certification bodies (CBs)to EPA using the Version 7 web service will display on our list of certified models.


4.  ENERGY STAR Computers Version 7.1 Final Specification
With this letter, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is finalizing the Version 7.1 amendments to the ENERGY STAR Computer specification. Most notably this amendment enables those products meeting the mobile workstation definition to utilize an adder to account for the additional utility and energy consumption of these products, clarifies the  requirements for utilizing alternative low power modes, and updates the internal power supply language. Computer products previously certified to Version 7.0 are not affected by this change.

EPA received multiple comments on the Version 7.1 proposal. One comment requested an update to the Mobile Workstation definition to update an outdated standards reference, which EPA accepted. In addition, a commenter requested a small change to the Alternative Low Power Mode (ALPM) definition to address that not all ALPMs necessarily maintain constant network connection, but are still considered an ALPM for sleep and long idle mode measurement purposes, which EPA also accepted. An additional commenter noted that in Table 6: IPS Efficiency Allowance, the reference to Minimum Average Efficiency is no longer utilized and should therefore be removed, which EPA incorporated into the amendment. A final comment received requested that EPA re-introduce the power management incentive structure found in Version 6.1. EPA reintroduced this incentive to credit manufacturers for power management settings. Finally, DOE has updated the ENERGY STAR test method to account for the release the final amendment.
