During their Sept. 15 meeting in Dallas, members of the SCTE's Sustainability Management Subcommittee (SMS) will review and discuss two proposed energy management standards. SMS 001 has been proposed for "Recommended Energy Conservation, Sustainability and Efficiency Practices for Critical Systems," and SMS 002 has been proposed for "Product Environmental Requirements for Cable Telecommunications Facilities."

To be held immediately following the SCTE's Sept. 14 semi-annual Smart Energy Management Initiative (SEMI) forum, the SMS meeting is intended to help shape standards to reduce the cost and environmental impact of cable operations and service delivery. In addition, attendees are expected to address the creation of standards for power availability of hardware that comes to market in 2013 and beyond.
