Policy Brief - Energy Aware Devices

EDNA has published a Policy Brief, suggesting policy options to encourage devices to report their own energy consumption

By Steven Beletich · Electronic Devices & Networks ·

This policy briefing summarises the key findings of the report: Energy Aware Devices - Study of Policy Opportunities, which outlines why and how network-connected devices can be cost-effectively harnessed to report their own, individual energy consumption.
It highlights the costs and various benefits of “energy aware” devices and provides guidance to policy makers who wish to stimulate this device functionality. It covers all types of electrical and electronic devices and equipment, particularly those which are network-connected. 

The policy brief can be downloaded here.
