Session at EU Sustainable Energy Week 2016
Green IT Amsterdam and Be Great are organizing a session at the EU Sustainable Energy Week 2016 in Brussels. The session on on the 15th of June is dedicated to Green IT, smart green urban datacenters, the energy chain of the internet. We aim is to raise awareness within a wide audience of European policymakers, urban planners, media and industry representatives both on the opportunities to green the internet further and on the technology initiatives the industry is taking to make this possible.
Subject: URBAN DATA CENTRES SUPPORTING LOCAL, SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SYSTEMS
The aim of the session The Internet energy chain: from smart urban datacenters to sustainable users behavior is twofold; on one hand it is to raise awareness amongst city planners, policy makers, IT and energy companies as well as web users, on the actual energetic and environmental impact of the ICT sector; and on the other hand it is to introduce solutions the sector itself is currently developing and implementing to face these challenges and to play a key role to the transition to sustainable energy.
The event, co-organised by Green IT Amsterdam (NL) and Be great (BE), will be divided into two sessions of 45 minutes. Each session will explore a part of the internet chain, aiming to raise awareness on how to reduce energy consumption, showcase opportunities, technology development and better practices in web user behaviours.
