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.
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 consumer devices and policy recommendations.
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 a wide range of products, as well as product-specific procedures where network functionality is a common or essential feature of the product
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 range of network standby
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
This report discusses the energy consumption of data centres (DC) and the wide area network (WAN) which connects computers and other devices together on the internet. These are complex
