The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) is finalizing work on the first standard for connected home appliances, which will facilitate interoperability between white goods and other products and services both in and outside of the home.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) applauded the recent decision by the Department of Energy (DOE) to deny a petition by the California Energy Commission (CEC) seeking separate water-usage regulations for residential clothes washers sold in the state.
According to the majap industry trade group, the decision "recognizes the wisdom" of Congress in passing the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA) which established national energy-efficiency standards for appliances.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM) to receive its 2005 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award for AHAM's efforts at promoting the responsible handling of flurocarbons, and for related research into ozone-friendly refrigerants and foam blowing agents.
The award will be presented at the 2005 Stratospheric Ozone Protection Awards Dinner, here, May 4.
