The CDA Centre of Excellence: Ways to harness internet-connected devices for an energy smart future

The Connected Devices Alliance (CDA) has launched a new online “centre of excellence” to support policy makers in addressing the potential for energy savings in smart devices.

The market for “always connected” consumer electronics is constantly growing. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts there could be 100 billion devices connected to communication networks by 2030. In addition, these devices increasingly possess new capabilities, like audio-streaming devices, home heating thermostats controlled from the cloud, automated home lighting and shading systems, and internet-enables fridges. Going unchecked, the “energy cost” of maintaining connectivity could undermine great leaps made by standards and labelling programmes in cutting energy waste world-wide.

Building action through cooperation: IPEEC's Buildings Energy Efficiency Task Group

It is hard to overstate the importance of the buildings sector towards efforts to save energy. Buildings are responsible for over 30% of global final energy consumption and will account for even more as populations grow and developing countries obtain more purchasing power, with an estimated 50% rise in building energy demand by 2050.
