Last year, Network-Connected Electronics wasted the amount of energy equivalent to 133 coal-fired power plants. According to a new report from the International Energy Administration (IEA), devices could use up to 65 percent less energy by applying available technology and solutions. 

Today, the world’s 14 billion network-enabled devices, such as set-top boxes, TVs, modems, printers, computers and game consoles, waste 400 terawatt-hours of energy globally each year. That is the same as the amount of electricity consumed annually by the United Kingdom and Norway combined. By 2030, the problem will considerably worsen, with an estimated 100 billion network-enabled devices. As more of the world’s population becomes connected, it is necessary to improve energy efficiency and to ensure that those devices draw as little power as possible.
