Provides guiding principles to policy makers for the development of digitalisation strategies that incorporate demand flexibility and intelligent efficiency applications as key objectives.
This policy brief sets out a guide for the development of country roadmaps for consumer device demand flexibility.
Provides policy guidance for encouraging the development of consumer devices which are capable of ‘energy smart digital functionality’
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.
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.
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
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
This report provides considerations for policy makers to encourage ‘smart’ consumer devices which save energy and provide demand flexibility. It includes key findings for the prioritisation of
Connecting devices to the internet has profound implications for energy use, in three areas: Digitalisation, Wasted Energy and Upstream Consequences. This policy brief covers the second topic

This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Global Forecast of Energy Use for Wireless Charging, which estimates the additional global energy that would be consumed if wireless charging is adopted for a wide range of small consumer devices
This briefing summarises the key findings of the EDNA report Energy Harvesting Technologies for IoT Edge Devices, which explores the potential to deploy Energy Harvesting Technologies (EHTs)
This paper examines elements of existing test procedures that address network standby in some way. This includes horizontal test procedures that cover standby and network standby for
In this report, we have built on the modeling methodology published in a recent white paper by Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Suzanne Foster Porter of Kannah Consulting
An integrated, energy-optimal design approach, in which disparate engineering teams collaborate iteratively toward energy optimization goals (including low network standby energy use), is currently the
This report examines the feasibility and economics of achieving network zero in three different products: mini-split HVAC systems, smart speakers, and connected light bulbs. We investigate the
The objective of this study is to develop a quantitative model of the “total energy use” of connected devices, globally. This report (and model) aims to quantify the total additional energy that results from devices becoming connected to a communications network
