Hi, sorry for the late answer.
For the RAM power consumption, if you are on Linux and having a recent processor (since the Sandy Bridge architecture), you can try to play with RAPL (Running Average Power Limit).

You will get the global power estimation for the CPU/Mem intensive workloads for a software or the computer.
If you want the global power consumption, you can use the PowerSpy power meter and then plug it into PowerSPY (module already created).
