I hope to find time to create a rough 2/98% index when I’m there and also ask those attending what they think about the balance/focus…
Maybe it is the names that are creating confusion, and maybe we should separate between “Green IT” and “Greening with IT”? See below for what seem to be an emerging consensus.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Low carbon IT solutions/Greening with IT/ the 98% potential
refer to the low carbon IT solutions like virtual meetings, smart buildings, smart grid and dematerialization that can help to reduce emissions significantly.
Low carbon IT/Green IT/the 2% emissions
refer to more energy efficient IT equipment that help reduce the emissions from the IT sector itself.
I realize that I'm not sure on what panels I will participate, but here and at one more event at least...
I will try to measure the balance between 2% and 98% at CeBIT and will come back with the results.
