Energy-Labeling Web-based IT Systems

Aktivitet: Tale eller præsentationForedrag og mundtlige bidrag


Running ICT currently consumes 6% of the electricity worldwide. ICT has
three main energy consumers: (1) user-devices that connect to the
Internet (42%), (2) networking equipment that transmits data between
devices (27%) and (3) servers (and local network) for keeping data
(31%). While hardware consumes energy, it can only be as efficient as
the software running on it and, thus, a reduction of the energy
consumption that is directly attributable the execution of software
would reduce the overall energy-consumption of ICT.

Based on the fact that consumer-oriented energy-labels have delivered
substantial energy savings in other sectors, we hypothesize that
providing consumer-oriented energy-labels for ICT software will promote
more energy-efficient software. Over time, this is expected to deliver
substantial energy savings. Our aim is to develop energy labels that
enable web-site creators and consumers to opt for low-energy consuming
sites and thereby promoting energy-efficient software. In this talk we
present the motivation, our approach and the challenges of delivering
consumer-oriented energy-labels for software.
