Wide Power Supply Efficiency Symposium
member of the PSMA Energy Committee, we will be developing a consensus,
plan, and process to create a symposium to address the on-going issues
of power supply efficiency. This may be expanded to include other
equipment if the interest warrants.
Draft of MOU (Partial)
It is recognized that there has
been significant effort put forth over the past 5 years to improve the
efficiency of power supplies in an attempt to reduce overall power
consumption. Further that
this effort has been global in nature, with a number of nations
expending resources to assure that higher efficiency levels are
established and complied by power supply manufacturers.
However it is recognized that
considerably more effort will be necessary to
Assure on-going compliance
Install and maintain standards that call for continuous
Nurture technologies that will provide this increased
efficiency at competitive cost
Drive toward a single unified world wide power supply
efficiency standard simplifying both compliance testing and compliance
Continue to promote and foster consumer efficiency
awareness that will result in efficiency conscience purchasing.
To accomplish this, it is
recognized that a symposium focused on power supply efficiency could be
a key instrument toward achieving these goals.
Such a symposium to be organized such that all power supply
industry stakeholders are attracted to attend:
Power supply manufacturers
OEM systems manufacturers (end equipment manufacturers)
This symposium should be organized
Provisions for high level professional technical input as
to the development, design, testing, and utilization of more efficient
A forum for discussing the establishment, and cooperative
compliance implementation of efficiency standards from the view of the
user, the manufacturer, the agency, the public
An event at which there is (are) awarding(s) of “Power
Supply Efficiency Stakeholders” Award(s)
to the person or persons that have made the most impact in the
previous year on improvement of power supply efficiency.
Booths will be available for exhibiting technologies,
products, services, and agency or corporate information
This symposium should be held
annually at locations, on a global rotational basis.
This is expected to be a 3-day event.
Conference papers and presentations should be selected by a
committee of professional peers. The
sessions should be organized and conducted by professional peers.
