Energy Star

The EPA and DOE formed the Energy Star program to recognize products that have proven energy efficiencies. To-date over 60 different product categories exist in the Energy Star program including the Roof Products Energy Star program. The criteria for a roof product to be qualified and labeled as Energy Star are:

For steep slope applications:
I. achieve a minimum initial solar reflectance of 0.25
II. achieve a minimum three-year aged solar reflectance of 0.15

For low slope roof applications
I. achieve a minimum initial solar reflectance of 0.65
II. achieve a minimum three-year aged solar reflectance of 0.50.

In addition, the thermal emittance of all products must be reported, even though there are no minimum criteria for that characteristic as of yet.

Prior to December 31, 2010 Energy Star was a self-certified program with no costs involved. However, in 2010 the EPA and DOE began to plan for significant changes to the Energy Star program, moving it away from self-certification and toward third-party accredited laboratory testing requirements. In the new program, products will be certified to the above mentioned criteria by an accredited laboratory. Existing certified products will also be subject to a random verification program. A certification body will be used to co-ordinate, witness and/or supervise the testing by all Energy Star Partners, using Energy Star accredited laboratories.​
