Technical Manager / Software Developer (Portland, OR)
Please join our team and make a significant contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions abatement.
What we do:
Globally, televisions use the equivalent energy output of about 150 coal power plants. Pacific Crest Labs is working with leading TV manufacturers and global policymakers to reduce that by more than a third (i.e. > 50 coal power plants). We have developed the TV policy approach used by ENERGY STAR and soon the Department of Energy. We have also developed a computer-automated, camera- based energy efficiency test system to support this new policy approach. Our TV policy approach is on the road to international adoption, and our test kits are used worldwide by leading TV manufacturers and test labs.
