Technology eliminates consumption of standby power

Written by: Chris Shaw | Published:

Power specialist, Ansmann Energy has announced a 'green' technology which it claims eliminates the consumption of standby power without compromising normal usage or convenience.

The technology has been designed to eliminates standby power consumption by automatically disconnecting electronic equipment from the mains when it is switched to this mode.

Ansmann is now making the ZeroWatt power technology available under licence to manufacturers worldwide for incorporation into electronic equipment designs.

Paul Channell, managing director of Ansmann Energy (UK), said: "Standby power consumption is a fundamental part of both today's electronic consumer society and modern industrial life. The cost savings and associated environmental benefits that could be generated by the elimination of standby power consumption are all too evident. It's estimated that cutting standby power consumption could save around 20million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. In major industrial countries the size of the United Kingdom, France or Germany, standby power consumption is estimated to be around 20billionkW hours a year. This equates to between 10% and 20% of the annual electricity usage of a typical household."
