HP ENERGY STAR® qualified products conserve energy, cut utility costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and help improve the quality of our environment without sacrificing top features or high performance.



Look for the ENERGY STAR® logo on a variety of home, office, and commercial products.

ENERGY STAR® is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy.

The program’s goal is to help consumers save money through lower utility costs and to protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.

In addition to office equipment, ENERGY STAR® qualified products include appliances, home electronics, and a variety of heating and cooling, lighting, and commercial products.

What are ENERGY STAR® requirements?

ENERGY STAR® qualified products not only help preserve the environment, they also save you money!

In order to earn an ENERGY STAR® qualification, products must meet rigorous energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy. For instance, ENERGY STAR® qualified imaging products such as printers, scanners, and All-in-Ones:

  • Can help businesses save money on air-conditioning and maintenance, thanks to efficient designs and cooler running temperatures.
  • Are 25% more efficient than conventional models.
  • Will, over the next five years, prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to that produced by four million cars.

HP offers customers a variety of ENERGY STAR® qualified products that use fewer resources, reduce energy consumption, and are designed with recycling in mind. HP ENERGY STAR® products also:

  • Produce less heat and reduce cooling loads* by nearly 15% (up to 30% in warmer climates).
  • Automatically go into Sleep mode after periods of inactivity. (HP ENERGY STAR® qualified computers use 75% less energy in Sleep mode.)
  • Use roughly half as much electricity as other products—cutting your utility costs in half as well.

Instant-on technology
Only available with HP LaserJet printers and All-in-Ones, such as the HP Color LaserJet CP1215 printer, Instant-on technology, helps conserve energy by allowing your printer to produce faster output when coming out of Powersave mode. Since 1993, Instant-on technology has helped prevent nearly 3.5 million tons of CO2 emissions—the equivalent to a year’s worth of emissions for nearly 680,000 cars!       

Receive faxes when power is off
Don’t expend the extra power to keep your All-in-One on for faxes that may come through at night or while you’re away—some HP All-in-Ones, such as the HP Officejet Pro L7780 All-in-One printer, have the ability to receive and store faxes even when turned off!

Everyday printing
Many HP printers and All-in-Ones offer a variety of capabilities that help conserve energy and save resources. For example, the HP Officejet Pro L7680 All-in-One printercomes with the following features:

  • All-in-One capabilities
    With the ability to print, copy, scan, and fax, the Officejet Pro L7680 offers the capabilities of several different machines within one product, and as a result, conserves energy and materials.
  • Duplex printing
    Duplex printing (also referred to as double-sided or two-sided printing) cuts your paper use in half by printing on both sides of the page. Check out the article Save money, paper, and time with automatic two-sided printing to learn more.
  • Sleep mode
    Using your printer’s Sleep mode or Powersave mode, helps reduce power consumption while idle.
