****************************************

Low power is very important for the reasons stated in class 1 as well as environmental and social reasons relating to energy use and lifestyle social determinants.  An interesting and perhaps, at first glance, 'fun' application is monitoring or controlling temperature in a refrigerated vehicle I suppose.  Perhaps there are bragging rights for keeping Eskimo pies at constant and sub-zero temperatures driving across the desert.  Perhaps a better total energy efficiency is to eliminate the application. 

Good engineers, being good citizens and wise stewards of the planet's energy sometimes might want to consider recommendations for a broader conservation of energy and resource utilization at the higher system levels.
