Turn Down the Heat
Three great brands have come together to raise awareness around how conserving heat is a great way to minimise our impact on the environment.
Iconic National Geographic, ground-breaking Epson and trusted Green Office Technology bring you innovative equipment to help you commit to your green credentials, change the way you print and save significant amounts of money and energy.
Switch to Heat-Free Technology for low power consumption. Even making a small change can really help. If everyone on the planet makes one small change, it can have a huge positive impact. Starting one page at a time, we can change the story together.
In this short video, National Geographic Explorer Katey Walter Anthony explains how "heat destroys permafrost. Conserving heat is one of the best ways to minimise our impact on the environment. Choosing Heat-Free Technology to lower energy consumption, will reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help us slow permafrost thaw in the arctic."

The benefits of Heat-Free Technology
Increase productivity and reduce environmental impact without compromise.
The Arctic is melting before our eyes
Based on Epson calculations, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-C8190DW uses 83% less energy than the HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M750dn, the highest-selling model in the A3 colour single-function 21-30ppm printer segment (IDC, Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, Q4 2015 to Q3 2019 shipments, published Q2 2020). Methodology based on ‘Typical Energy Consumption’, defined under and/or simulated with reference to the ENERGY STAR test procedure and presented in kWh per year. CO2 saving calculated as being proportional to energy saving, based on a per-territory average generation of kg CO2 per kWh electricity used.
Storage space comparison based on Epson calculations of storage space requirements for packaged consumables sufficient to print 6,000 pages on 12 SFP and MFP (3-in-1) printers selected from among the top-selling 50% of A4 monochrome laser printers (below-20ppm class) listed in IDC Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker 2019Q2 data FY17 results. Average toner package unit volumes and yields for each model were calculated by Epson using toner package dimensions and yields published by the manufacturer for each model (as of August 2019). Actual size and number of toner cartridges required varies by laser printer model. EcoTank consumables quoted yields are simulated figures calculated by Epson based on ISO/IEC24711 methodology using ISO/IEC19752 test pat.
Based on Epson calculations, Epson business inkjet time-saving calculated by comparison to business laser devices’ average lowest “Print/Copy time” (“from Previous Job”, “from Ready State” or “from Sleep State”) as reported by ENERGY STAR, added to the time taken to print at maximum speed the remaining pages in an average sized office print job and multiplied by the average number of print jobs per year, according to Keypoint Intelligence. Laser printer models identified using IDC, Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, Q3 2016 to 2020 Q2 shipments, published Q2 2020.
