Solutions for Energy Management & Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in ICT field
ICTFOOTPRINT.eu 5th webinar has insights on how to manage the energy consumed by ICT and how Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can guide you to make your ICT more sustainable.
Jean-Marc Alberola, Group Energy Strategy leader at Airbus & Vice Chairman of ETSI ISG OEU (Industry Specification Group Operational Energy Efficiency For Users). Jean-Marc spoke about the work developed by ETSI ISG-OEU, operative KPIs that enable the monitoring of the energy management performance in data centres and ICT sites. After a short description of the global KPI DCEM, the presentation focused on the implementation of these KPI’s in an industrial area of corporate ICT sites.
Fadri Casty & Tereza Lévová, both from EcoInvent, the world's most consistent & transparent Life Cycle Inventory database. The ecoinvent database provides well documented process data for thousands of products, helping you make truly informed decisions about their environmental impact. Fadri and Tereza demonstrated the value of doing LCA on ICT equipment.
Berina Delalic, from multEE introduced the Monitoring & Verification Platform (MVP), a web based tool developed to calculate and store data about energy and CO2 savings resulting from implemented energy efficiency measures. Having in mind central role of ICT especially in the commercial sector, some methods are developed for improving ICT’s energy efficiency, and therefore achieving CO2 emission reduction. The presentation showed how MVP can be used for measuring results from the activities that enable more efficient use of energy for ICT in commercial buildings.
