Flat Panel TV Power Consumption?

There's been a few new developments in flat panel technology lately with a lot of green (power consumption) focus. Anyone done any research as to the optimal technology and brand for a low power unit for a yacht?

LED, Plasma, Organic light emitting diode (OLED) Surface-conduction electron-emitter (SED) Field emission (FED) Laser TV Ferro Liquid (FLD) Interferometric modulator display (IMOD) Thick-film dielectric electroluminescent (TDEL) Nanocrystal Quantum dot LED (QDLED) Micro device (MDDP) Time Multiplexed Optical Shutter (TMOS) Transparent electroluminescent Carbon nanotube (CNT) Telescopic pixel (TPD) Liquid crystal lasers (LCL) High dynamic range (HDR)

See the “Energy Star”, or IEC 2087 ratings for the specific model of candidate TV set you're considering.

In general:
Rear Projector ≈ 0.13 watt per square inch
LCD ≈ 0.27 watt per square inch
Plasma ≈ 0.34 watt per square inch

Unless you habitually unplug your TV, when not in use, you should also look at the IDLE (standby) power usage.
