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.
This report analyses the energy use of mobile devices, compares policies and identifies policy gaps.
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
This study explores the existing metrics for data centre efficiency, and identifies which metric(s) might be suited for use by policy makers.
This policy brief explains how blockchains work, their use for cryptocurrencies and resulting energy consumption
Provides policy considerations for improving the energy efficiency of small network equipment such as modems, routers, network extenders, etc.
This joint report with the Users TCP investigates ‘usability’ issues associated with energy smart digital devices.
This report presents information on novel data centre KPIs: the Server Idle coefficient and the Data Centre Idle Coefficient.
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 retrofit solutions on the market today to identify those that could be leveraged to achieve energy benefits in otherwise unconnected residential products.
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.
This report describes updates to the Total Energy Model that was developed by EDNA to estimate the ‘total energy use’ of connected devices, globally.
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.
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 – Wasted Energy
