So by applying the data on Xbox consoles, we can schedule any update during the nightly maintenance window, which will result in a reduction in carbon emissions as electricity consumption will be low. For example, instead of waking up at a random time during the night, between 2 and 6 am, our Xbox will choose a time when it can use as much renewable energy as possible, depending on the region it is in. This will reduce dependence on fossil fuels and CO2 emissions and potentially save money. Please note, however, that this update is currently only available to Insiders using the shutdown (power saving) mode, but it will be available to everyone very soon. To do this, you will have to change your console’s settings and put your console into “Stop” (power saving) mode, knowing that you can reduce power consumption by up to 20 times compared to Sleep mode.
To select the power off (power saving) mode on your Xbox, go to Settings > General > Power Options.
