Energy-driven Consolidation in Digital Home

Abstract : As our society becomes more and more digital, the corresponding demand for electric energy is increasing. Despite the power efficient design of devices, this rising trend of energy consumption does not weaken because of more and more devices used in our daily life. Collaboration strategies between devices can reduce their overall electrical consumption. Consolidation - i.e., migrating tasks among devices to place into low power state or to switch off a maximum of unused devices - is a mean of optimizing the consumption of a group of devices. So far, consolidation is mainly used in datacenters. Here, we propose a model to extend this approach to Digital Home. This model takes into account properties, such as the unforeseeable appearance of devices or restrictions due to task nature. Its implementation in a Digital Home environment saves around 25% of the energy consumption in a scenario based on the daily life of a family of four persons.
