The Bad News: ICT Accounts for Approximately...
…of Global CO2 Emissions.
The Good News: There are substantial inefficiencies in the technology and use behaviors that can be readily addressed â€Ś 2% â€Śand IT can significantly contribute to control and reduce the 98% of CO2 emissions caused by other activities and industries.
Focus on energy efficiency: •Demand •Supply •Cost

PUE: •A way to look at ‘Power Usage Effectiveness’. •Does not go below 1. •Has (international) rules on calculation and publication. •Its not a marketing tool.
Still a long way to go: •Energy usage: 41% Closet & Small, 31% Medium, 28% Large – Datacenters; •> 50% of datacenter owners do not measure PUE.
Still a long way to go (2): •IT equipment average intake temperature; still 20 – 22C. (BCS research 2010); •ASHRAE 2008: 27C max; 2011: 35C max. Also relaxed humidity range.
Where to start?: -Measuring; -Implement basic best practices; -Read the research that is available. And start saving money now..
Energy in the Stack; But â€˜Greenâ€™ is more than facility energy; Treat the data center as a common system - Input & Output.
Green Grid Maturity Model; •Think Facility and IT •Management •CO2 emissions •Water usage •E-Waste
PUE is only the beginningâ€Ś.; Next WUE & CUE
How Green is your Cloud?
So: Why should I care ? •Green equals cost leadership; •Corporate social responsibility (CSR); •Government regulation on the horizon; •Governement demand; •Avoid bad press…
Being ‘Green’ requires; •Looking at the whole ICT stack – cradle-to-cradle; •Constant innovation; •Transparency; •Education – staff & customers.
