The demand for products that consume less energy, and ultimately result in lower emissions, is ever increasing. Our customers wish to lower their impact on the environment while also reducing operating energy costs. Lexmark invests in developing energy efficient products to not only fulfill our customer’s expectations, but also extend the impact of our environmental efforts far beyond what we can do within our walls.
Product Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) confirm that improvements in energy efficiency can have a considerable effect on the use phase. For example, the Lexmark CS820 Series printers and CX820, CX825 and CX860 Series MFPs announced in 2016 demonstrate significant improvements in energy consumption as demonstrated by their LCAs—showing a 30–50 percent reduction in their Typical Electricity Consumption (TEC) values when compared to the previous generation of products.
With Lexmark Managed Print Services usage analytics and our LCA tool data, we are able to more accurately estimate the actual energy used during the customer use phase for Lexmark products. This custom estimate is substantially lower than the standard claim using the ENERGY STAR TEC calculations, which tend to overestimate actual usage.
External standards and specifications help Lexmark drive efficient designs. All product families announced 2012 or later meet the energy requirements of ENERGY STAR V2.0 and have a power consumption of 4 watts or less in sleep mode. Moving forward, Lexmark will continue to reduce sleep mode power for our future products, targeting 2 watts or less in anticipation of 2019 EU requirements (European Union EC 801/2013). Lexmark products also enable the Hibernate mode to automatically engage when the products are not in use and not connected to a network.
