Motion text

That this House notes that domestic appliances left in standby mode are responsible for approximately 10 per cent. of the energy consumption of each domestic property in the United Kingdom; further notes that switching off domestic appliances when not in use could save one megatonne a year of carbon; welcomes the initiative of some manufacturers in developing appliances with low standby power consumption; further welcomes the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' Market Transformation Programme as a valuable means by which such products can be encouraged; and urges the Government to consider the feasibility of establishing a statutory one watt maximum standby power requirement for all electrical appliances sold in the United Kingdom.
