While Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) systems are able to perform per-connected-device DC-power control, monitoring, and reporting, such an equivalent does not exist for AC-powered devices. Techniques presented herein enable a holistic view of both AC and DC powered devices, which may enable organizations, such as organizations operating multi-tenanted workspaces or those charged with improving their real-estate carbon footprint, to develop a detailed view of their power footprint, as well as manage power consumption of individuals, devices, and/or workspace locations in a proactive and intelligent manner.
