The California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy
Research (PIER) program and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR® program
are sponsoring a free one-day technical workshop on Jan. 19, 2006, to discuss the final draft (Draft 5)
of a generalized energy efficiency test procedure for internal power supplies. This meeting, hosted by
ON Semiconductor at its headquarters in Phoenix, Ariz., will be the last forum for stakeholders (i.e.,
industry representatives, policy makers and energy efficiency advocates) to comment publicly before
the test procedure is finalized and unveiled March 23, 2006, at the Applied Power Electronics
Conference and Exposition (APEC) in Dallas, Texas.
