There is an "EuP Directive" (for Energy Using Products) in Europe, but
the details are a little stealth.  

The EuP Directive work seems to be concentrated largely on consumer
appliances and public and consumer lighting, the low-hanging fruit.
Office equipment, specifically computers and "imaging devices" are
slightly further down on the list.  

I could not find the technical attachments to the directives that
specify watts, so here are a pile of news and official references.  

An oldie.  Legalese that speaks to eco-design, but not to watts and
volts.

News article on EuP, but still no hard references to docs.
