The objective of the workshop was to help future-proof energy efficiency policy-making by providing insights into trends and energy implications of increasing network-connectivity. Focus will be placed on how to limit standby power consumption of network-connected appliances and policies and supporting measures needed to improve energy efficiency.
The workshop also provided an opportunity to discuss wider energy implications of "smart" products and systems and identify new areas where international collaboration could be instrumental in accelerating progress towards energy efficiency.
The workshop culminated in a high-level session in the afternoon of the 17 September which provided an overview of key issues and approaches and offered a platform of strategic discussions on how to move forward with tackling ICT-related energy consumption. Please find attached the Agenda.
