We all know that vampires exist on TV and books. But did you know that there is a vampire living in our world? this vampire is not feeding on human blood but rather on our money. Not only that but it is destroying our environment and it is our duty to stop him. This enemy is ?vampire power? or also known as ?standby power?. It is the amount of electricity consumed when the devices are in standby mode. According to several studies the vampire power consumes around 3-10% of residential electricity in developing countries and generates almost 1% of their carbon emissions. In Australia, alone standby power consumption creates 2.6 million tonnes of carbon-dioxide emissions annually.
