Hello nengo community,

Since the main advantage of using a spiking neural network is energy efficiency. I was just wondering is there any way in nengo to calculate the energy consumed by nengo_dl model? Take the example of MNIST: two same models but one is non-spiking such as in Keras and another one spiking one. How can we say that the spiking version consumes less energy? Is there any way to calculate this energy consumption without using any hardware?

Sorry if this question is already answered in some thread in the forum. I couldnâ€™t find a relevant one in the forum.

Thank you in advance for your answer.
