IEEE's Green ICT Initiatives

IEEE describes itself as "the world's largest professional association for the advancement of technology." We regularly cite its magazine, IEEE Spectrum, on this site. Here is an update of IEEE initiatives relevant to Green ICT.

IEEE work has contributed to the EPEAT registry criteria.

The IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing's Area of Green Computing aims "to create a Technical Resource Center, which provides introductory information and various challenges in the area of Green Computing, links to major R&D projects around the world of Green Computing. "

IEEE's Technical Committee on Green Communications and Computing (TCGCC) provides "a platform for its members, and the whole research, development, standardization, and service community of energy- and/or resource- efficient and/or environment-sustainable communications, computing, and relevant systems, to interact and exchange technical ideas, to identify major research and development challenges, and to collaborate and investigate solutions in the development of energy-sustainable, resource-saving, and environment-friendly green communications and computing technologies."

The IEEE Research Project on Vision for Green ICT Standardizations was started in 2013 and is still developing its charter. One of its activities is sponsorship of the GSICT workshop.

Access to material about/from GSICT and other IEEE-sponsored Green ICT events, past and future, is available at our Green ICT Conference Directory
