According to a European Union study, electric appliances in stand by mode produce an energy expenditure of 7,000 million euros annually and cause 20 million tonnes of CO² emissions.
 
This study shows that in 2005, devices in stand-by mode consumed 50 terawatt hours, equivalent to the total consumption of countries such as Greece and Portugal.
 
When closing your business, remember to completely shut down all computer equipment.
 
Of Interest: A team from the Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (UPC) has developed a device called ‘100% Off’. This is s multiple socket extension that makes it possible to choose what devices are to be completely turned off and which ones will stay in stand by mode. Thanks to this, energy expenditure of devices in "stand by" mode is reduced to zero.
