Environmental Protection Agency Office of Inspector General, ENERGY STAR Label Needs to Assure Superior Energy Conservation Performance, A Summary Report, October 28, 2010

We believe the ENERGY STAR program has sought to maximize the number of qualified products available at the expense of identifying products and practices that maximize energy efficiency.
