Green Grids 2009

1st International ICST Workshop on Green Grids, collocated with GridNets 2009,

Athens, Greece, 8 September 2009


Motivation and rationale for the workshop

ICT provides many energy-saving solutions, but is also responsible for a considerable and quickly increasing energy footprint on its own. Recent surveys estimate that the complete life cycle of ICT equipment today is responsible for about 4% of the worldwide primary energy consumption. This percentage is expected to double within 10-15 years, if current ICT energy trends are not drastically deviated. Due to these forecasts, the awareness for ICT energy reducing research is rising steeply in the community.
