Task 13 – Energy Use for Wireless Charging

This task: Predicts the additional future energy that could be used by wireless device chargers Quantifies the potential energy savings available from policies to regulate/stimulate higher efficiency of wireless chargers. Provides a brief international overview of the kinds of modifications to existing battery

Task 11 – Test Procedures for Network Standby Power

This task summarises (and explains in plain English) the various test procedures for network standby power, evaluates them, identifies gaps and recommends improvements. The report for this task was published in

Task 10 – Network Zero Devices

This task will involve preparation of a report which maps a technology and policy pathway towards “network zero” connected devices. These are devices which do not rely on the grid for the energy required to remain connected to a communications network. It is expected that such devices would utilise

Task 8 – Total Energy Model for Connected Devices

This task involves developing a quantitative model of the “total energy cost” of connected devices, globally. The objective of the report (and model) is to quantify the total additional energy that results from devices becoming connected to a communications network. The model will be developed as a living document, which can be updated as additional […]

Task 7 – Policy Case for Connected Devices

This task involves preparation of a global business case to support the implementation of policies for connected devices. The objective is to provide interested governments with an initial set of information that allows them to commence development of policies for connected devices

Task 6 – Energy Harvesting

The Internet of Things (IoT) includes many networked devices which consume energy. Specifically decentralized edge devices, like actuators and sensors often utilise batteries as their energy source. The EDNA report Energy Efficiency of the Internet of Things shows the substantial increase in

Task 5 – Network Standby Power Basics

This EDNA report examines the power used for “network standby”. In the context of this report, network standby refers to functionality that allows a product to maintain a network connection and await a network “trigger” in order to be awoken when needed

Task 3 – Intelligent Efficiency (Policy Opportunities)

The deployment of network-connected, next-generation sensors, controls, and communication technologies provides great opportunities to utilize collected data in real-time, in order to optimize the operation of buildings and other

Task 2 – Energy Efficiency of the Internet of Things

This Task is a first step to tackle the widespread field of energy efficiency in IoT. It aims to enhance the market and technology knowledge, to prioritize the topics to address, to develop high-level recommendations on policies

Task 1 – Smart Metering and Energy Monitoring Systems

Studies show that smart meters offer energy savings potential of 5 to 15% of household energy consumption. However, a comprehensive estimate of efficiency has yet to include the parasitic energy use of smart metering infrastructure. There are trade-offs between the energy consumption resulting from the deployment of new smart metering infrastructure, and the potential gains […]
