As part of a multidisciplinary panel, Dr. Charles Despins, Green ICT Initiative co-Chair, contributed to a 2014 report by the Council of Canadian Academies (CCA), which had been commissioned by the Government in Canada on "Enabling Sustainability in an Interconnected World". The report was produced with a focus on Canada but most of its observations are still applicable to many countries. The report’s interplay between technologists of different fields as well as sociologists can illustrate how IEEE members and others stakeholders can actively participate in the Green ICT Initiative.

Leeds Communications Networks research team wins the 2016 Premium Award for best paper in IET Optoelectronics
September 7, 2016, 4:19pm
The Communication Networks research team in the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, has won the prestigious IET 2016 Premium Award for Best Paper in IET Optoelectronics. Their paper ‘Green optical orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing networks’ was rated the best paper published over the past 2 years in the renowned IET Optoelectronics. This underpins the work of the proposed standards working group. The IET has one Premium Award available per journal to recognize the best research papers published during the last two years.

Information and communication technology are power hogs. Computers, printers, servers, mobile devices, and telecommunication networks are not energy efficient. Although improvements have been made, it has not been enough of a priority. And that’s a problem, because projections show

In this paper, we demonstrate microwave flexible thin-film transistors (TFTs) on biodegradable substrates towards potential green portable devices. The combination of cellulose nanofibrillated fiber (CNF) substrate, which is a biobased and biodegradable platform, with transferrable single crystalline Si nanomembrane (Si NM), enables the realization of truly biodegradable, flexible, and high performance devices.

In this project, an innovative Telco-grade cloud technology has been developed to minimize cloud computing impacts on the environment (cf. http://www.synchromedia.ca/node/870 for more details). To evaluate the environmental benefits of the GSTC technology, several applications were investigated using the life cycle assessment (LCA) method.
