Plug loads are no longer isolated “miscellaneous” devices. This networked revolution started quietly in our living rooms and offices with smart consumer electronics. Among plug load devices, home entertainment electronics have offered the greatest prospects for cost effective energy savings since the beginning of the high definition entertainment era.
Imagine a world where all STBs go to sleep at less than five watts and wake up in five seconds. CalPlug has made substantial progress on this “5W5s” roadmap with our industry project champions.
One of the more popular demonstrations in the CalPlug Center housed at Calit2 is the “Wall of Power.” The living room simulation, equipped with everyday entertainment and household devices that plug into outlets, allows “consumers” to control energy usage by powering devices on and off, while seeing their energy consumption in real-time.
Policy makers, manufacturers, utility representatives and academic researchers joined forces last week at Calit2 to learn from each other in an attempt to advance energy efficiency measures in the rapidly growing plug load sector of electricity use.
