An “Energy Conservation System for Distribution Outlets”, has been developed by OKI in order to control energy conservation at distribution outlets and manage energy consumption throughout a network of outlets. Energy conservation field tests were conducted at actual retail outlets in order to verify the energy conservation effects, which resulted in an electric power consumption reduction of more than 5 %.

A wireless multi-hop network that can operate over a long period of time using battery driven nodes only, which was previously impossible, is becoming a reality through an electric power conserving sensor node technology. This paper explains such an electric power saving energy node technology, which is essential for building systems in order to conserve energy for environmental monitoring as well as other applications.
