Sustainable IT in Tertiary Education
Implementing Green IT - Cutting ICT-related Costs and CarbonMonday 24th August 2009
Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh
Colleges and universities are increasingly aware that they need to minimise their ICT-related energy consumption and environmental footprint - a message which was reinforced at a recent JISC Regional Support Centre Smarter Greener Learning event. This follow on, free, conference focuses on the implementation of green IT.
It is a partnership of EAUC Scotland's Scottish Funding Council-financed Carbon and Energy Management Programme; and two JISC-supported bodies, the Scotland North East RSC and the SusteIT project. Topics to be addressed include:
- Identifying cost-effective and easily achieved improvement opportunities
- Persuading managers and colleagues that Green IT is feasible and worthwhile
- How automatic powerdown can payback in a few months
- Effective implementation of virtualisation
- More efficient data centre cooling through conventional methods, free cooling and direct use of chilled water
- Raising the desktop bar through the new Energy Star 5 scheme.
