In 2018 EDNA developed a Total Energy Model (TEM) for connected devices, including an associated report. The objective was to develop a quantitative model of the ‘total energy use’ of connected devices, globally. The model considers a number of product categories and combines information on the stock of devices, and the allocation of energy consumption, to quantify the total additional energy consumption of devices when connected to a communications network.
In 2020 the TEM is being extdended in order to:
A report, and associated online content, is expected in 2020.
