Impact of Data Centers on Electricity and Environment

December 21st, 2016

Several IEEE Green-ICT volunteers have just published in the Journal of Industrial Ecology an analysis on the “Consequences of Future Data Center Deployment in Canada on Electricity Generation and Environmental Impacts: A 2015–2030 Prospective Study”.  The environmental impacts of data centers that provide information and communication technologies (ICTs) services are strongly related to electricity generation. With the increasing use of ICT, many data centers are expected to be built, causing more absolute impacts on the environment.

Congrats on the approval of the 9 PARs.

At the NesCom December meeting, the 9 Project Authorization Request (PARs) have succeeded the second stage of the approval process and were all approved. Congratulations to all proposers!
Next step is to solicit the participation of interested persons in each working Group.  Further information on the creation of these 9 working groups will follow in January.
