NEEA Market Progress Evaluation Report #4: 80 PLUS

The 80 PLUS program certifies energy-efficient power supplies for desktop personal computers (PCs) and servers. As a sponsor of 80 PLUS from 2004 to 2011, the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) provided financial incentives to computer manufacturers for commercial sales of desktop PCs and servers incorporating 80 PLUS certified power supplies within the Northwest region. This is the fourth Market Progress Evaluation Report (MPER) on NEEA’s 80 PLUS program. The key objectives of this MPER are to understand market trends, update the Alliance Cost-Effectiveness (ACE) model assumptions on market share, baselines, and incremental costs, and to determine if the energy-efficient power supplies market has transformed to the point that it will sustain itself.
