Electronics, Lighting and Networks

Electronics, Lighting and Networks

Electronics, Lighting and Networks researchers are dedicated to understanding the energy implications of electronics, lighting and networks, and saving energy through these technologies.

Electronics is a new category of energy use: it consists of devices whose primary function is to process information. Lighting is closely tied to electronics because of the increasing overlap of illumination and information. Electronics—from PCs to TVs to LEDs—have many unique energy-related features. For example, one device's energy use or functional state may be determined by other devices on the same network. Electronics and networks products appear in every sector—from buildings to the grid—and in many forms, but the technical issues related to energy use are similar.

Recent research covers such diverse areas as energy-efficient Ethernet, energy use of set-top boxes, and the user interfaces of thermostats and lighting controls.
