ICT can help lower greenhouse gas emission
Page 1 of 4NEW DELHI: Increased use of information and communication technology (ICT) such as video conferencing and smart building management could cut global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 16.5% by 2020, amounting to $1.9 trillion in gross energy and fuel savings,sac louis vuitton pas cher, according to a recently unveiled study,Sac hermes, SMARTer2020. The study shows that concerted action by policy makers to encourage the use of ICT can save 9.1 gigatonnes carbon dioxide equivalent (GtCO2e) of harmful greenhouse gases from being emitted.The study was conducted by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) on behalf of the Global e Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), an ICT industry partnership for sustainability. It concludes that the potential for information technology to reduce global carbon emissions has been under estimated until now, and that the abatement potential of ICT is seven times the size of the ICT sector's own carbon footprint. The findings are being released today in a report titled "SMARTer2020".SMARTer2020 follows up the SMART2020 study, which first evaluated ICT's potential to enable a low carbon economy in 2008. The updated in depth research in SMARTer2020 now concludes that up to 16.5% of global GHG emissions can be slashed by implementing ICT solutions throughout the economy   over 16% more savings than was calculated in the earlier study four years ago.The new research identifies GHG abatement potential from ICT enabled solutions ranging across six sectors of the economy: power, transportation,christian louboutin online, manufacturing,louboutin femme, consumer and service, agriculture, and buildings. Emission reductions come from virtualisation initiatives such as cloud computing and video conferencing, but also through efficiency gains such as optimisation of variable speed motors in manufacturing, smart livestock management to reduce methane emissions, and 32 other ICT enabled solutions identified in the study. Some ICT driven solutions such as smart electricity grids reap benefits at the national level, whilst others like intelligent building management systems can result in energy   and cost   savings for individual households and businesses.The report includes detailed national studies of the GHG abatement potential of ICT in seven countries,hollister pas cher, identifying for each country the best strategies for policy makers to pursue. For India, emissions growth has been exacerbated by poor transport and energy infrastructure, and heavy reliance on fossil fuels. The study targets the potential for GHG abatement in India from adopting ICT enabled solutions in its power and transport sectors. The other countries studied were Brazil, Canada, China, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.The study was released at United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) COP18 meeting in Doha. Welcoming the report, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UNFCCC stated, "I am pleased that this important new study shows how information and communication technology can play an essential role in saving energy. Now we need more and effective government policies that reward such action and penalise delayed responses."Speaking at the launch of the report,air jordan, Luis Neves, GeSI Chairman,sac louis vuitton pas cher vente, said,recommandation, "SMARTer2020 shows the abatement potential of ICT is seven times the size of the ICT sector's direct emissions. Information technology can drive the transition to a low carbon economy, with greater efficiency, and the preservation of our environment."Philipp Jung, a San Francisco based partner at BCG, added, "This study shows that information and communications technology can achieve even greater savings than we previously thought   as much as $1.9 trillion annually by 2020. The research also shows that country specific approaches, coordinated within a global framework, are essential to realizing this potential given the diverse country specific circumstances."About usAdvertise with usTerms of Use and Grievance Redressal PolicyPrivacy policyFeedbackLiving and entertainment.
