eWIN Energy-efficient wireless networking: With the ICT industry consuming up to 10% of the world’s energy and doubling every five years, there is a mounting pressure to engineer “Green ICT systems” where energy consumption is seen as a first-class system property.

Although such green ICT systems certainly require efficient components, much of the wasteful energy expenditure is due to poor resource management, unfortunate protocol interactions, and a mindset of offering high throughput “at any price”. This project aims at developing energy-efficient wireless networking principles, both in terms of minimizing energy usage in current and upcoming wireless standards, and in terms of clean-slate architectures for energy-efficient wireless communication.
