Workshop: "Green ICT & ICT for Green (communication technologies and environmental sustainability)"

On February 22nd, 13:30 Rogers Room (via Ampère 2, Milan), a workshop on “Green ICT & ICT for Green” will be organized by the Politecnico di Milano and by the Ordine degli Ingegneri.

The ICT sector plays a key role in environmental policies. On the one hand, ICT has to improve its environmental impact by reducing its energy consumption and total emissions of CO2 (Green ICT). On the other hand, ICT applications are also part of the solution of environmental problems as they can improve the environmental impact of all other sectors of the worldwide economy, reducing their energy consumption and allowing a more sustainable energy generation through renewables sources (ICT for Green).

The workshop is to provide an overview on the Smart Grid, Energy Saving, Green computing & networking, and to present research results and implementation experiences with contributions from companies and research laboratories.
