Large flat screen TVs can use up to 660 watts per year
The average TV uses around 200 kWh per year, but some new large flat screen models can use up to 660 kWh per year, so it pays to keep this in mind.
Digital decoders (Set-top boxes)
From 1 November 2009 all TV transmissions in Denmark will be digital. This means that viewers will need to purchase either a TV with a built-in digital decoder or a separate decoder. However, some decoders can cost up to 27 Euros a year in extra power consumption.
VCRs and DVDs
Many Danish homes still have one of the old type VCRs. New DVD equipment with hard drive recorders have been on sale in shops for a long time and these will soon dominate the market.
Audio systems and separates
Audio systems and separates come in a wide variety of shapes and forms, and many have low power consumption. But there are still some power guzzlers around.
