Low Standby Power Products

The Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) develops acquisition guidance for products with low standby power. Standby power is the level of power consumption that occurs when a device is in the lowest power-consuming mode—typically when the product is switched off or not performing its primary purpose.

Federal agencies are required to purchase products with a standby power level of 1 watt or less. FEMP provides resources to help agencies find low standby power products and meet purchasing requirements.
