CEDM News: Recent press release states Carnegie Mellon engineering researchers report that changes in video console standards could easily lower US electricity consumption

Engineering and Public Policy Ph.D. students Eric Hittinger and Kimberly Mullins in conjunction with Ines Lima Azevedo, executive director of CMU�s Climate and Energy Decision-Making Center and an EPP assistant research professor are the subject of a recent Carnegie Mellon University press release. The press release describes recent research into energy inefficiencies inherent in current video game console standards, and ways that those inefficiencies could be reduced in the future. The complete report, the first peer-reviewed study of game console electricity use, will be published in the journal Energy Efficiency later this year.
