Executive Summary

In light of the increased awareness of global energy consumption, questions are being asked about the energy contribution of computing equipment. Although studies have documented the share of energy consumption by this type of equipment over the years, research has rarely characterized the increasing share contributed by the rapidly growing segment of portable, pervasive computing devices. Portable computing is widely predicted to be a dominant mode of computing and communication in the future, and accounting for its energy consumption is necessary to develop efficient practices.
