ENIAC targets energy savings

The European Nanoelectronics Initiative Advisory Council (ENIAC) has named increased energy efficiency of electronic equipment as a major research target. Up to 30 percent of the world's electrical energy consumption could be saved by using intelligent energy management functions, believes ENIAC Chairman Wolfgang Ziebart.

ENIAC now plans to boost research for more energy efficient electronics; European companies have an edge in energy-saving technologies anyway, believes Ziebart. "The technology leadership of European companies in the area of increasing the energy efficiency will be secured by our research initiatives supporting the development of more efficient technologies," the Chairman said in a press release, adding that a 25 percent increase in global energy efficiency would equal the total annual electric energy demand of the USA.
