Standby for a smart energy saving

The development of ‘smart’ networked appliances has created a new challenge for keeping energy consumption down thanks to the power drain while on standby. But fresh innovations could change that.

Less than a decade ago, televisions in homes around the world consumed significant electricity whether they were turned on or off. But in 1999 the IEA spearheaded the “1-watt” initiative that led to the average new television’s standby consumption falling from about 5 watts to half a watt, saving energy for countries, money for consumers and carbon from the atmosphere.
