Average standby power of household connected devices per unit

The rapid growth of connected devices comes with a hidden energy price tag and network standby is often a connected device’s biggest draw on power. Worldwide network-related standby energy use could grow 20% per year to 46 TWh by 2025.

There are currently mandatory energy performance standards or energy labels aimed at limiting network standby energy in the European Union, India, Korea, Mexico and the United States, including limits on standby power use, standby power requirements for connected devices labelled as energy-efficient, and functional requirements, such as mandatory product inclusion of use modes that minimise standby power use.
