More Data, Less Energy: Making Network Standby More Efficient in Billions of Connected Devices
This report explores the dramatic global increase in ownership of networked devices, and probes the hidden costs of rising energy demand to maintain a network connection for these products. The report describes technologies and technical solutions as well as a range of policy options that are available to reduce energy waste. More Data, Less Energy is a joint publication between the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the IEA Implementing Agreement for Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment (IEA 4E).
