Description / Abstract:

Purpose

This NEMA white paper explores the conflict between limitations on what is commonly referred to as standby power and the potential services and benefits of connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Traditional approaches and definitions of standby power are device-focused and do not address network related services, only device level on/off or settings changes. As such, standby power is treated as a drain or waste on building energy consumption. An excellent example of this negative attitude is the European Union’s colloquialism for standby power: vampire power. Narrow-minded or device-focused views on standby power treat it as a loss without considering the myriad benefits it might enable. Responsible regulations for standby power must accurately characterize and address power consumption needs of connected systems devices.

(In this paper the abbreviation IoT refers to both IoT and IIoT.)
