An increasing number of electronic devices are connected to other electronic equipment in networks, constantly communicating with each other. This communication entails various standby states where devices consume energy even when the primary function is not being performed. IEA has together with the IEA Implementing Agreement for a Co-operating Programme on Efficient Electrical End-Use Equipment (4E) Standby Power Annex initiated a project to decrease networked standby energy consumption.
The project is implemented in close co-operation with the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) Initiative's working group on network standby. This second joint IEA/4E/SEAD and Natural Resources Canada technical workshop aimed to explore and discuss current and planned policies, results from ongoing projects, gain insights from industry and other key stakeholders and discuss progress needed towards a policy framework for networked standby.
