Windows to Be Incorporated into ENERGY STAR’s “Most Efficient” Program

During a stakeholder meeting hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on August 27, fenestration-related organizations learned that windows will be incorporated into ENERGY STAR’S ®  “Most Efficient” program.

The program’s project manager, Doug Anderson, said the designation will not include a label to be affixed to products, but pointed out that a label may be included in various promotional tools such as Websites and other display materials. 

Anderson added that the windows program will be comparable to the EPA’s existing program for heating and cooling equipment.

The final ENERGY STAR ® criteria are expected to be published in October 2012.
