Vampire Energy Loss Sucks

Apple iPhone 5 still an energy vampire

September 18th, 2012

You probably want it. Most people will. Myself included. Each iteration of iPhone brings arguably the next most coveted smart phone, but with all the new specs and features, the iPhone 5 is still an energy vampire.

Even with the revamped adapter, Lightning, that replaces the standard 30-pin Apple adapter and promises higher output performance, the iPhone 5 still ships with a standard vampire charger. We’ve all witnessed the evolution of smart phones, but as charger technology has evolved, large mobile device players haven’t.

Apple will most likely sell tens of millions of these devices, and like every other ubiquitous mobile phone sold, they will ship with an energy-wasting charger. The simple step of replacing the vampire charger with a Vampire Proof™  charger would save untold amounts of unnecessary emissions and wasted electricity.

In the foreseeable future, laws will require all chargers to eliminate vampire energy loss, because our energy demands are high enough for the energy we actually use that it’s absurd so much is thrown away by inferior, outdated products and technologies.

Really, it shouldn’t have to come down to regulations. Vampire Proof™ technology and chargers are low cost and available today, and they fill a much needed gap in the evolution of the often forgotten devices that power our most indispensable things.

 

California leading the charge against vampire energy

January 21st, 2012

In a unanimous vote last week, the California Energy Commission decided to implement new energy-efficiency standards for battery charging systems, like those found on cell phones and power tools, in an effort to reduce vampire energy loss.

The average California home has 11 “vampire” chargers – chargers which continue to draw small amounts of power even when no device is connected. These chargers waste well over 60% of the energy they consume and cost California the equivalent of powering 350,000 homes for an entire year.

According to the Commission, this new technology is inexpensive but will save an estimated $306 million a year in residential and commercial electricity bills.

The Commission’s findings stated that the estimated increase to an electric toothbrush, would cost 40 cents, but would return $1.19 in electricity savings – a 3-to-1 return – over the life of the product. In addition, the added cost of 50 cents to a laptop computer would yield an 18-to-1 return by providing the consumer with $9 in electric­ity savings over the life of the device.

As California goes, so goes the nation. The strict energy saving standards are the first of their kind in the US and go into effect at the beginning of next year.

Due to the size and historical influence of California’s consumer markets, this innovative policy will undoubtedly upgrade energy efficiency standards nationwide.

The VampireSmart™ Charger from Vampire Labs – a More Intelligent Way to Charge

November 29th, 2010

The new VampireSmart™ from Vampire Labs reduces vampire energy loss by up to 90% and is one of the most eco-friendly and travelable chargers on the market due to its unique design and rapid charging ability. Equipped with energy efficient technology that addresses the flow of electricity that is wasted by most chargers and being just larger than a quarter, the VampireSmart™ charger is the perfect fit for those on the go who keep their planetary impact in mind.

Last year in the United States, vampire energy loss was responsible for around $10 billion in wasted electricity and contributed billions of tons of unnecessary CO2 emissions into the Earth’s atmosphere. Those numbers are expected to increase with the proliferation of mobile devices and rising energy prices.

“These new charging options will make a necessary and fundamental impact on energy use in electronic devices that quietly dominate the energy supply across the globe,” according to Vampire Labs’ VP of Marketing, Hugh Thompson. “Our desire is to influence how consumers draw energy and ultimately see all electronic devices use their energy more efficiently.”

Vampire Labs is improving energy efficiency in the world’s most ubiquitous electronic devices. As demand grows exponentially across the globe for communication devices, so increases the strain on the energy supply to support them. Learn more at www.vampirelabs.com.

European Union funding Multimillion Dollar Research Project to combat Vampire Energy Loss

November 19th, 2010

The European Union is taking a serious stab at vampire energy loss (the energy leaked by most electronics when they are not in use or performing their primary function) through a recently announced $5.5 million dollar research project, per a recent IBM press release and related CNET article.

Project Steeper, a collaboration between IBM and other top energy researchers, focuses on the transistors that often leak electricity and contribute to the global epidemic known as vampire energy loss. It is actually a subset of parasitic loss, which is one of the three main components of vampire energy loss as defined by Vampire Labs.

The project is slated out for 3 years with a deliverable of  “creating semiconductors that have a more abrupt switch between the on and off state than the metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (more commonly referred to as CMOS technology) used since the 1970′s. These devices would have a steep slope between on/off transitions, which gives the project its name, and would lower the leakage of charge in transistors.” As CMOS transistor scaling continues into deep submicron nodes beyond 22nm, leakage power is expected to waste as much as 80% of the total power consumed by an integrated circuit such as a modern microprocessor.

According to top energy researchers, Lawrence Berkley National Lab, vampire energy loss is responsible for around 10% of an average US household’s annual energy bill. Our research indicates that this is relatively dated information, pertinent a few years ago, with the actual range of wasted energy at around 15% today and growing. According to IBM, one year of vampire energy loss in Europe is equivalent “to the electricity consumption of Austria, Czech Republic, and Portugal in one year” combined.

A project of this scope involving topnotch researchers and funded by large governmental bodies is welcomed news. Its promise of new transistors and semiconductor designs will greatly impact world energy use while not changing consumer behavior. Their plan is to implement this at the original equipment manufacturer level, something Vampire Labs has been innovating, developing, and advocating for years with our focus on totally eliminating vampire energy loss.

The impact of Project Steeper could potentially be powerful, but it’s a long term solution with a projected deliverable within 6-10 years. In the interim, consumers, corporations, manufacturers, and governmental bodies should look at existing vampire energy slaying technologies and how they can immediately be leveraged to combat this pervasive and global energy parasite.

Dear Mr. President: AT&T, GE, Google and others urge Obama on Home Energy Monitoring

April 9th, 2010

dear-mr-president3Earlier this week, 47 companies, including savvy corporate giants AT&T, GE, Google, and Intel,  sent a letter to the White House requesting a summit on home and office energy use monitoring. Home energy monitors, like smart meters and devices, have been around for quite a while, which may have you asking what’s the big deal?

Whenever Google publicly does something of this nature, we should be paying attention. The same can be said for their PR-savvy counterparts. Most of these corporations are very guarded with their street cred. Additionally, it’s not good enough to brush this aside as a good natured call to governmental duty because that would be naive.

The opening paragraph of their missive to Obama reads:

letter-to-the-president-paragraph-1-2

Clearly Google, AT&T, GE, Nokia, Intel and the rest are vying for plausibility of providing this type of consumer and commercial energy management on the varying platforms they specialize in, support or manufacture. Sending an open letter to Obama is a sharp marketing ploy to create public interest and demand surrounding the individual savings and global impact that reducing wasted energy at home and in the office will have. Something Vampire Labs has been arguing all along.

Plus, they are asking the US government to be a leader (err … market driver?) in four bullet points from their letter:

letter-to-the-president-bullet-points-2

Expect to see an escalating push around the individual and global savings of monitoring residential and office energy on a very large scale. Do any of the aforementioned companies market any other way? High level savings data was already outlined in the dispatch:

letter-to-the-president-savings-paragraph-2

Conjointly, the corporations and associations involved are seeing a developing market and are informing the right administration – we are ready to make good on a clean energy future and it starts with wasted energy; let’s work together.

Energy Efficiency Week in the U.S. Congress

March 9th, 2010

Congress ChamberU.S. Congressional hearings are set this week for proposed energy efficiency legislation and programs, like Home Star and Building Star, which primarily focus on residential home and commercial energy efficiency and rebating those who outfit their homes or commercial locations accordingly. Check out the New York Times online Green Wire post for detailed information on these and other exciting energy efficiency legislation slated to be reviewed this week in Congress.

2010 continues to be the year of energy efficiency, and the positive attention it is receiving from venture capital markets, consumers, the European Union and U.S. Governmental bodies are market drivers that contend it’s here to stay.

Why not have products and facilities that waste energy use that energy more efficiently? It saves energy resources, which in turn saves money, reduces unnecessary climate warming environmental waste, and can ultimately lower the cost of energy altogether. Our future depends on conserving energy in a practical manner and that future is now.

Energy Efficiency sees boost in VC Deals

February 17th, 2010

A recent Ernst & Young analysisgreen-piggy-bank revealed that cleantech Venture Capital (VC) investments fell 50% overall in 2009 from 2008. Seemingly alarming news for this important sector, but there’s optimism in their analysis.

What is cleantech and why should anyone care that VC funding dropped 50%?

Ernst & Young,  a global leader in assurance, advisory services, tax, transactions, and strategic growth markets,  defined cleantech in their analysis as, “a diverse range of innovative products and services that optimize the use of natural resources or reduce the negative environmental impact of their use while creating value by lowering cost, improving efficiency, or providing superior performance.” Cleantech will continue to play a vital role in our everyday lives and our future. The U.S. Government thinks it so vital that they are noted as one of the largest investors in the sector.

If cleantech is so crucial, why are VCs backing off?

Keeping in mind the global recession and that 2008 was a record year for cleantech investments, the analysis becomes less drastic. After all cleantech received $2.6 Billion in VC financing through 2009, and Q409 was even kinder. VC cleantech deals rose 21% overall in Q409 while  energy efficiency cleaned up. As a sub-sector of cleantech, energy efficiency VC investment rose 11% in Q409 making it the largest VC deal maker. In line with the boost in VC deals, energy efficiency also raised the most capital in Q409 than all the other cleantech subsectors.

The shift marks as an interesting cleantech market driver. Others noted in the analysis include the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, which recently awarded $2.3 Billion to cleantech manufacturing; the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, who is expediting cleantech entries; U.S. corporations, who are rapidly “going green” in order to reduce overhead and operating costs; and U.S. public markets, which brought $2.8 Billion in cleantech investment.

John de Young, an Associate Director at Ernst & Young, captured the trend concisely, “These results reflect the easing of an investment cycle largely driven by significant capital demands of solar companies and a shift toward energy efficiency products with lower funding requirements and potentially faster commercialization.

Energy Efficiencies’ role in Obama’s 2011 Budget Request

February 4th, 2010

Green EnergyPresident Obama released his Administration’s 2011 budget request on Tuesday, and energy efficiencies’ role in the United States’ energy policy is increasing. According to the President’s budget proposal, the DOE will be appointed around 28.4 Billion, which is $2 Billion more than what has been slated for 2010. As Energy Secretary Steven Chu expressed, “This budget supports new approaches to energy research and invests in the next generation of scientists and engineers, and it will spark clean energy projects nationwide.”

Highlights per the Office of Management and Budget website on the Energy Department’s 2011 budget allocation:

  • $4.7 Billion in clean energy technology investments at DOE, including:
  • Nearly $2.4 Billion for energy efficiency and renewable energy programs.
  • $300 Million for the Advanced Research Projects Agency- Energy to accelerate game-changing energy technologies in need of rapid and flexible experimentation or engineering.
  • $793 Million for clean energy activities, including R&D and infrastructure programs.
  • $5.1 Billion for the Office of Science, including $1.8 Billion for basic energy sciences to discover novel ways to produce, store, and use energy.
  • Double newable energy generating capicity by 2012.
  • Assist in the development and deployment of advanced battery manufacturing capacity to support 500,000 hybrid electric vehicles a year by 2015.
  • Retrofits for 1.1 Million housing units through 2011.

Obama on the 2011 energy allocations, “We will build on the largest investment in clean energy history, as well as increase investment in scientific research so that we are fostering the industries and jobs of the future.”

The United States’ energy policy is finally moving in the right direction under the Obama Administration.

Survey Says – Energy Efficiency #1 Attribute for Consumers

January 26th, 2010

green-1A new survey conducted by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) finds consumers want energy efficient technology to save them money. In fact, it’s the #1 attribute consumers look for when purchasing new appliances. (UL is an independent certification organization that has been testing and creating standards for electronics and other products for over a century.)

A recent Consumer Electronics Association study  corroborates this data but goes even further by indicating that consumers believe energy efficient electronics will save them money. And they’re right - energy efficient electronics will reduce the electricity that is used; thus, reducing the cost to operate that specific electronic.

appliancesAnd the government is well aware of this data. According to Steven Chu, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy, ”Appliances consume a huge amount of our electricity, so there’s enormous potential to both save energy and save families money every month” Cash for Appliances is a government program to replace old inefficient appliances with more efficient Energy Star approved ones. Learn more about how to take advantage of appliance rebates.

Much like the Universal Charging Solution, an industry-wide effort led by the GSMA to standardize cell phone chargers, the program is well intended and will save money, energy and help reduce harmful CO2; BUT, Cash for Appliances still misses the larger picture of eliminating wasted energy that occurs when the appliance is plugged in but not in use or serving its primary function.

Vampire Energy Loss, often times called Vampire or Standby Power, is a parasitic blip suffered by most electronic devices – whether it’s a cell phone charger, microwave, laptop, washer or flat screen. If they are left plugged in and are electronic, then they most likely suck electricity when they are not being used. Through Energy Star, vampire power is slightly reduced in most products but not eliminated. If the aim is to be truly energy efficient, then vampire energy loss must be annihilated. The technology exists and should be utilized more effectively.
