Policies for Data Centre Energy Efficiency: Scope, Trends and Availability of Data
This report proposes a definition and characterisation of data centres, presents trends in their energy use, and analyses the availability of data which might be used as inputs to energy efficiency metrics.
Emerging Battery Technologies
This research study examines new battery technologies suited to powering small devices such as IoT, actuators and sensors, and portable devices such as mobile phones and laptops.
Guide to Energy Management Protocols
This report is a guide to ‘application layer’ communications protocols used for energy management, such as those used to facilitate intelligent efficiency and demand flexibility.
Mobile Device Efficiency
This report analyses the energy use of mobile devices, compares policies and identifies policy gaps.
Standardisation for Smart Devices
This report highlights the most relevant standards in areas such as measurement of energy consumption of smart devices, and communication protocols for smart devices.
The objective of this study is to gain a better understanding on the issue of (a lack of) device interoperability and the resultant impact of this on Intelligent Efficiency and Demand Flexibility
Energy Efficiency Metrics for Data Centres
This study explores the existing metrics for data centre efficiency, and identifies which metric(s) might be suited for use by policy makers.
Policy Brief – Blockchain Energy Consumption
This policy brief explains how blockchains work, their use for cryptocurrencies and resulting energy consumption
Policy Brief – Small Network Equipment
Provides policy considerations for improving the energy efficiency of small network equipment such as modems, routers, network extenders, etc.
Are We Getting the Best Out of Smart Home Technologies? The Role of Usability
This joint report with the Users TCP investigates ‘usability’ issues associated with energy smart digital devices.
Data Centre and Server ‘Idle Coefficients’
This report presents information on novel data centre KPIs: the Server Idle coefficient and the Data Centre Idle Coefficient.
Policy Brief – Energy Applications within IoT and Digitalisation Strategies
Provides guiding principles to policy makers for the development of digitalisation strategies that incorporate demand flexibility and intelligent efficiency applications as key objectives.
Policy Brief – Roadmap for Consumer Devices to Participate in Demand Flexibility
This policy brief sets out a guide for the development of country roadmaps for consumer device demand flexibility.
Policy Brief – Policy Guidance for Energy Smart Digital Devices
Provides policy guidance for encouraging the development of consumer devices which are capable of ‘energy smart digital functionality’
Small Network Equipment: Considerations for Energy Efficiency Policy
This report provides an overview of small network equipment (e.g. routers and modems), investigates options for policies and estimates the potential for energy savings.
Retrofitting Connectivity for Energy Benefits
This report examines the retrofit solutions on the market today to identify those that could be leveraged to achieve energy benefits in otherwise unconnected residential products.
Harnessing IoT for Energy Benefits
This report examines the landscape of residential IoT products and the functions within those products that can be leveraged to yield energy benefits. These functions include monitoring via on- board sensors and internal or external data feeds, and controls that can reside within or external to the product. We examine the extent to which products possess these functions today, the energy benefits products can achieve with those functions, and the appropriateness of adding additional functions to achieve additional energy benefits.
Total Energy Model V2.0 for Connected Devices
This report describes updates to the Total Energy Model that was developed by EDNA to estimate the ‘total energy use’ of connected devices, globally.
Roadmap for Consumer Devices to Participate in Demand Flexibility
The purpose of this report is to provide technical assistance and policy guidance to support national or regional government organisations, utilities, and/or energy regulatory bodies in
Energy Applications within IoT and Digitalisation Strategies
The purpose of this report is to provide guiding principles to policy makers for developing and implementing national/regional digitalisation and IoT strategies that emphasise energy
