TVs and other consumer electronics have received a bad reputation, particularly in California, as being energy hogs. Manufacturers have been listening and all showed TVs with considerably reduced power consumption. Most of those were in the form of LED LCD TVs, which naturally consume less energy, but even Panasonic showed more energy-efficient plasma TVs that met the new Energy Star 4.0 specification.

Prediction: Energy efficiency has been a hot topic, but not one that gets consumers to spend more on an equivalent product.

Next year Panasonic will introduce a plasma that runs off the energy output of a potato.
