In spite of the investments in green ICT, companies and educators lack reusable green practices including operational actions to re-green ICT, metrics, and examples of achieved results. The objective of the project is to make available reusable practices for energy-efficient ICT systems and more sustainable ICT supported processes.
By setting up an open green ICT practices library, students, educators and researchers can study and experiment with green practices, and measure the achieved environmental effects and economic benefits.
Currently the library is presented with a collection of green ICT practices elicited from literature, research/education and industry. It makes explicit their environmental effects and economic benefits, which assists companies and organizations to select the most appropriate green practices for their own green objectives.
Companies that have successful practices and experiences in improving ICT energy efficiency are highly welcome to contribute.
