What does the future of eco-friendly digital signage look like in terms of power consumption?

The biggest impact that I see in relation to power consumption is Power Over Ethernet (POE). This will allow users to no longer require bulky power supplies and outlets to provide power to sleek, small, digital signage devices. In addition, it’s less for businesses to support and maintain with fewer moving pieces. As hardware becomes available with this feature, I could see this having a huge impact as it drastically reduces deployment costs for electric needs during an installation.
