PC PowerSaving energy is in everyone’s best interest. So, what are the California Energy Commission's (CEC) new rules for PCs? What is the structure and timing of the regulations? How will the rules and standards affect the semiconductor design ecosystem including EDA, IP, embedded software and other technology vendors that supply products to PC system manufacturers? How will compliance with the rules be enforced? What are the broader implications of energy efficiency rules and standards for the electronics industry in the era of IoT? How will adoption of these rules benefit consumers, businesses, and governments locally, nationally, and globally? What are the likely opportunities for providers of goods and services in the semiconductor design ecosystem?

This program will introduce and explain the new standards and give panelists a chance to provide their perspectives followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A session.

Key takeaways from this informative evening with a panel of experts include:

  • An understanding of the CEC’s new energy efficiency rules and regulations for PCs and monitors. How they came about, why they are necessary, how much they will save, when they will take effect and how they will be enforced.
  • What the rules mean for manufacturers and the supply chain. What implications the rules have for broader national and global energy efficiency standards for electronic products, particularly as it relates to the emerging IoT market.
  • Potential opportunities for new technical innovations in design and manufacturing.
  • Insight into the energy efficiency perspectives and “care abouts” of executive panelists representing the semiconductor, EDA, and embedded systems/IoT industries. How these executives view the CEC rules and what impact they will have on their companies’ as well as industries’ energy policy and strategies. How the new rules could affect the economy.
  • An opportunity to network with your peers in the industry.
