Improving the energy efficiency of digital displays

Adult choosing TV in retail store

We’re consulting on options to improve the energy efficiency of televisions, computer monitors and digital signage – collectively called digital displays – being sold or supplied in Australia or New Zealand. 

The digital displays being sold or supplied in Australia and New Zealand use more energy than those in other comparable countries, which means higher energy bills and running costs to businesses and households. 

The proposed changes would update Australian and New Zealand regulations and bring them into line with European requirements. 

The benefits of updating these regulations to improve the energy efficiency of these products are: 

  • helping people save money by using less energy at home and in business 

  • lowering greenhouse gas emissions, which will help Australia meet its greenhouse gas emission commitments 

  • reducing demand on the electricity network. 

Our Consultation Regulation Impact Statement identifies a range of options to improve the energy efficiency of electronic displays supplied in Australia and New Zealand. You can find the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement on the consultation page

We welcome written submissions on any aspect of the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement. Your feedback will help Australia’s Energy Ministers to decide: 

  • whether to change the energy efficiency and labelling requirements for televisions and computer monitors 

  • whether to introduce new labelling and standby and network power requirements for digital signage displays 

  • the process for introducing any new requirements for these products. 

Have your say by 5 pm AEST, 4 July 2023.
