Solutions for Energy Management & Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in ICT field

Solutions for Energy Management & Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in ICT field

Thursday, April 27, 2017

On 27 April 2017 ICTFOOTPRINT.eu organised its 5th webinar. The webinar was all about helping you better manage energy consumed by ICT and showing how Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can guide you in making your ICT more sustainable. Anyone who wants to become more sustainable in ICT should watch this really informative webinar.

There are many ways to become smarter on how we manage the energy we need when using ICT. In fact, becoming sustainable in ICT doesn’t mean necessarily that we should only focus on the energy consumed by ICT. We shall also take into account the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of all ICT components, that is analyse environmental impacts associated with all the stages of a product's life, from raw material extraction through materials processing, manufacture, distribution, use, repair and maintenance, and disposal or recycling. The following speakers will give you insights on how 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 will introduce 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 will demonstrated how MVP can be used for measuring results from the activities that enable more efficient use of energy for ICT in commercial buildings.

The webinar was moderated by Silvana Muscella (Project Coordinator of ICTFOOTPRINT.eu and CEO of Trust-IT Services) who has broad experience in stimulating topics in the ICT sector. In recent years, her drive has been in getting her team to turn its expertise into developing useful ICT tools and services for smaller companies, like Trust-IT, in the ICT areas for energy efficiency, cloud procurement and cybersecurity, and providing online tools for making cloud computing easier for novices especially.

The 1 hour webinar is free and open to all

Why should you watch the webinar?

  • Learn how to start making your ICT more sustainable;
  • See how you can manage better the energy consumption of your ICT;
  • Start benefiting from the advantages of improved energy efficiency and reduced energy costs;
  • Absolutely free to join and in 1 hour you’ll have a clear picture of how to improve your energy efficiency in ICT.

The webinar is for any European ICT player that needs to improve its energy efficiency in ICT.
