Abstract: Expectations are that broadband equipment will contribute considerably to the electricity consumption of households in European Community in the near future. Depending on the penetration level, the specifications of the equipment and the requirements of the service provider, a total European consumption of at least 50 TWh per year was estimated for the year 2015 for broadband equipment. With the general principles and actions resulting from the implementation of the Code of Conduct the electricity consumption can be slightly reduced or kept constant compared to a business as usual scenario with growing usage and penetration of broadband equipment in the EU. The Code of Conduct sets out the power consumption levels for energy efficient broadband equipment.
