> +## Suitability for constrained devices
+
+"Constrained" means that available memory, energy, and processor cycles are so
+reduced as to become a dominant consideration in design requirements [1]. 
+
+#### Energy efficiency
+
+RIOT nodes sometimes need to last for several years without external power, so
+they need to manage energy carefully. RIOT's tickless scheduler lets devices
+sleep while they aren't collecting data.
+
+Modules outside the core should leverage the benefits and address the
+programming challenges of such a scheduler. They shouldn't demand that users do
+the same.  They should, however, allow users to manage power through different
+modes and functions.
+

Clarified the section about energy efficiency offline, with some initial thoughts. @MichelRottleuthner will think more about any further clarifications.
