The Smart Electronics Initiative (SEI) is a unique collaborative of consumer electronics developers, manufacturers and retailers working together with policymakers, academia and technical analysts to develop a framework to incentivize the production and use of energy efficient consumer electronics devices.
The SEI identifies “smart” technologies, educates consumers and develops new policy recommendations to improve energy efficiency in consumer electronics. Early leaders for the initiative include: ARM Holdings, Belkin, Marvell, ON Semiconductor, Power Integrations and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The SEI was founded by the Green Technology Leadership Group. The Green Technology Leadership Group (GTLG) is a nonprofit organization committed to providing policy leadership for the sector by connecting innovators with policymakers. Participants in the organization are leading companies, clean technology business organizations and policy experts in the areas of renewable energy (solar, biomass, wind, and geothermal), alternatives fuels, carbon management, energy efficiency and other green technology innovators.
