Third ETSI Workshop on ICT Energy Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability
The third ETSI Workshop on ICT Energy Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability took place on 3-5 June 2015, in Sophia-Antipolis, France
Protecting the environment is a global concern, involving whole industries, as well as individuals. Determining how to reduce the environmental impact and energy consumption, via standardized methods, will provide obvious environmental benefits, but it also makes good business sense.
ETSI is at the forefront of developing standards to reduce the energy consumption and the environmental impact of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) networks (including facilities and data centers), equipment and services.
More information on ETSI activities on environmental aspects is available at http://www.etsi.org/technologies-clusters/technologies/environmental-aspects
ETSI activities cover methods for measuring energy efficiency, best practices to reduce energy usage/greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions/material resources, environmental sustainability (life cycle assessment), best practices for use of renewable power sources in telecommunication installations, requirements for power supply interface and grounding in the field of ICT, environmental conditions and infrastructural aspects for telecommunication equipment intended to operate in a specific environment.
Many research initiatives are ongoing in parallel, aiming at creating a deeper understanding on the environmental impacts of ICT and finding ways to further increase energy efficiency.
Goals of the workshop
The workshop emphasized how to evaluate and reduce the environmental impact of ICT.
In addition, the workshop enabled delegates to:
- Obtain an overview and share views on energy and assessment methodologies for environmental impact,
- Share views on applicability of energy and assessment methodologies for environmental impact standards between ETSI and other organizations;
- Get an overview on the applicable research activities and their (potential) relationship with standardization;
- Obtain knowledge on successful examples of energy improvements and environmental impact reductions (including e-waste) obtained thanks to ICT;
- Identify research methodologies used for energy efficiency and assessment methodologies for environmental impact and their relations to standards;
- Identify any potential gaps, overlaps and harmonization opportunities for energy and environmental impact standards and methodologies;
- ICT equipment, networks and services future standardization needs for energy efficiency and assessment methodologies for environmental impact.
