I have been living with a 2015 15” retina mbp and using GNU/Linux(Linux Mint 17 atm) in it for few years. The hardware is pretty nice, but drivers and powersaving has been pretty shaky. My average battery life has been around 2 hours. People using OS X usually report battery lifes of about 8 hours with this configuration. So there is something fishy going on with the power saving in Linux.
TL; DR; Disable the most used ACPI-interrupts to save power:
# Check which interrupts are getting triggered grep . -r /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/ # Disable the offending interrupt. In my case it was gpe06 echo "disable" | sudo bash -c "cat > /sys/firmware/acpi/interrupts/gpe06"
I found this fix by monitoring the power usage with powertop
If you want to persist this fix over reboots, you can add it to your /etc/rc.local in order to run it after boot..
