Task 20 – Small Network Equipment

Small network equipment (SNE) of the kind used in homes and small offices (e.g. routers and modems) are significant consumers of energy.  These are subject to voluntary agreements in the US, as well as Energy Star.

The objectives of this task are to:

  • Provide an overview of the equipment involved, including a categorisation that is useful for policy makers.
  • Collect data on the power and energy consumption of individual equipment, including deriving power budgets for functions.
  • Investigate options for policies
  • Estimate the potential for energy savings.

A report is expected to be published in late 2021.
