                Executive Order 13221 of July 31, 2001

Energy Efficient Standby Power Devices

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including the National Energy Conservation 
                Policy Act (Public Law 95-619, 92 Stat. 3206, 42 U.S.C. 
                8252 et seq.), as amended by the Energy Policy Act of 
                1992 (EPACT) (Public Law 102-486, 106 Stat. 2776), and 
                section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and in 
                order to further encourage energy conservation by the 
                Federal Government, it is hereby ordered as follows:

                Section 1. Energy Efficient Standby Power Devices. Each 
                agency, when it purchases commercially available, off-
                the-shelf products that use external standby power 
                devices, or that contain an internal standby power 
                function, shall purchase products that use no more than 
                one watt in their standby power consuming mode. If such 
                products are not available, agencies shall purchase 
                products with the lowest standby power wattage while in 
                their standby power consuming mode. Agencies shall 
                adhere to these requirements, when life-cycle cost-
                effective and practicable and where the relevant 
                product's utility and performance are not compromised 
                as a result. By December 31, 2001, and on an annual 
                basis thereafter, the Department of Energy, in 
                consultation with the Department of Defense and the 
                General Services Administration, shall compile a 
                preliminary list of products to be subject to these 
                requirements. The Department of Energy shall finalize 
                the list and may remove products deemed inappropriate 
                for listing.

                Sec. 2. Independent Agencies. Independent agencies are 
                encouraged to comply with the provisions of this order.

                Sec. 3. Definition. ``Agency'' means an executive 
                agency as defined in 5 U.S.C. 105. For the purpose of 
                this order, military departments, as defined in 5 
                U.S.C. 102, are covered by the Department of Defense.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                     July 31, 2001.
