The Open Bulletin Technology Spotlight zooms in on a particularly interesting outcome reported
by one of the 39 IEA Energy Technology Initiatives.  


What are network connected devices and why do we care about their energy use?

EDNA video ‌‌‌‌‌The Electronic Devices and Networks Annex (EDNA), which operates under the Energy Efficient End-Use Equipment initiative, focuses on monitoring, measuring and reporting on the energy consumed by network connected devices and their associated networks.  Network connected devices offer enormous opportunities for energy management. At the same time, there is a responsibility to ensure that these devices use a minimal amount of energy to stay connected. This short video explains what is meant by network connected devices and why we should care about their energy use.
