Green Computing : Green Computing 1 Green Computing Presented by Pirate Introduction : Introduction Also called as Green IT.
It is an environmental friendly IT where the main objective is to reduce the hazardous materials and maximize the energy efficiency .
Reduce the power consumption and thus reduce the global warming. Green Computing 2 Why is Green Computing required? : Why is Green Computing required? Computer consumes a lot of energy.
Printing often unnecessary stuff is waste,
Toxicity. Green Computing 3 History : History It originated in 1992 at the U.S Environmental Protection Agency that launched Energy Star program.
Shortly after that the term “Green Computing “ was coined.
Shortly after that the Swedish also launched the TCO Certification. Green Computing 4 Energy Consumption : Energy Consumption CPU uses 120 Watts
CRT uses 150 Watts
Energy use comes from
electrical current to run the CPU, motherboard, memory
running the fan and spinning the disk(s)
monitor (CRTs consume more power than any other computer component)
printers Green Computing 5 Pathways to Green Computing : Pathways to Green Computing The following are the pathways to green computing:
Green Manufacturing Green Computing 6 Approaches : : Approaches : Product Longevity
Software & deployment optimization
Materials Recycling Green Computing 7 Methods to implement Green Computing : Methods to implement Green Computing Carbon Free Computing
Virtualization Green Computing 8 Slide 9: Green Computing 9 Solar Computing Zonbu’s Zonbox
(Credit: Zonbu) Sugar powered batteries (Credit: Sony) Reducing the energy consumption. : Reducing the energy consumption. Turn off the computer when not in use, even if just for an hour
Turn off the monitor when not in use (as opposed to running a screen saver)
Use power saver mode Green Computing 10 Reducing the energy consumption. : Reducing the energy consumption. Use LCDs instead of CRTs as they are more power efficient
Use hardware/software with the Energy Star label
Don’t print unless required.
Choose Intel & VIA Processors in comparison to AMD Processors. Green Computing 11 Benefits : : Benefits : Improve the savings.
Ecofriendly and environment friendly. Green Computing 12 Bibliography: : Bibliography: www.HowStuffWorks.com
