  1. Canadian Ops Ink Set-Top Energy Agreement

    Canadian pay TV service providers (cable, direct-to-home satellite and IPTV), along with set-top box manufacturers, have finalized a voluntary agreement to improve the energy efficiency of set-top boxes across Canada. With the agreement, reached in consultation with federal and provincial governments, utilities and supporting organizations, it is expected that total annual energy consumption in Canada will be reduced and annual carbon dioxide emissions will be cut by more than 100,000 tons. At least 90% of all new set-top boxes purchased beginning in 2017 are expected to meet the energy efficiency standards set out in the agreement. The agreement, along with complementary measures such as the ENERGY STAR program, is expected to reduce the total annual energy consumption of Canadian set-top boxes from 3.4 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2016 to 2.7 TWh in 2021. The agreement includes annual reporting and audit mechanisms to track energy savings. Voluntary agreement signatories to date include Bell, Cogeco Communications, Rogers Communications, Shaw Communications and Vidéotron, which collectively serve more than 88% of the Canadian pay TV market. Manufacturers ARRIS and EchoStar Technologies are also signatories.
