Samsung Electronics was awarded two of the first-ever SEAD Global Efficiency Medals during an awards ceremony at IFA, the world’s largest consumer electronics fair. Recognizing Europe’s most energy efficient, flat-panel televisions in three different size categories – small, medium and large – the SEAD Global Efficiency Medals were given to the UE26EH4000 in the small-size category (less than 29 inches) and the UE40EH5000 in the medium-size category (29 inches to 42 inches).
The SEAD Global Efficiency Medals are the latest acknowledgments of Samsung’s commitment to a green planet.
Launched this year by the Clean Energy Ministerial’s Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative, the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal program promotes the production and sale of super-efficient products in different regions. Following the recognition of the most energy-efficient flat-panel televisions in the European Union, the SEAD global award will also identify the most efficient TVs in the small, medium and large categories in North America, Australia and India—ultimately naming one International Winner in each category. International Winners will be announced in October.
The SEAD Global Efficiency Medal is awarded to the flat-panel television in each category that consumes the least amount of power under the normal, regional operating conditions. Currently, only commercially available products that meet sales-unit requirements can be nominated for this award—Australia and India applicants are required to have sold at least 5,000 units, and North America and European applicants are required to have sold at least 50,000 units.
All flat-panel televisions that receive the SEAD global awards are permitted to use the SEAD Global Efficiency Medal emblem on product packaging.
