Microsoft is working in the Insider Program on a new way to configure - Windows Update!

Announcing Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567 | Windows Insider Blog

This confirms that the projects are already underway - hopefully they will end with supplementation to the stable version of Windows11.

"Windows Update leverages more renewable energy
Windows Update will try to schedule update installations at specific times of day when doing so results in lower carbon emissions. Most electrical grids are powered by multiple sources, including renewables and fossil fuels. Whenever possible, Windows 11 will now prioritize installing updates in the background at times when greater amounts of clean energy sources (like wind, solar, and hydro) are available"
