Prompt G-ICT : ITU – Quito, July 10 th, CANADIAN INITIATIVES IN GREEN ICT Green Information & Communication Technologies To Reduce Global Warming ITU Symposium on ICTs and Climate Change Quito, Ecuador Session 2: Mitigation 1a, July 8 th 2009 Jacques Mc Neill, Prompt, Montreal, Canada
2009 G-ICT Green Information & Communications Technologies © Prompt inc. Prompt G-ICT : ITU – Quito, July 10 th, Partnership for Research On Microelectronics, Photonics and Telecommunications; A Montreal-based Industry-University consortium in the ICT sector; Since 2003, 50 partnerships with 11 universities and 40 industry partners, valued at more than $30M in cash contributions to universities. Prompt at a glance
2009 G-ICT Green Information & Communications Technologies © Prompt inc. Prompt G-ICT : ITU – Quito, July 10 th, Growth of Internet and ICT is (too) hot Shortcomings of present Internet Need IP-V6, NGI, Internet-2, NGN, etc. CANARIE, promoter of Canadas advanced communications infrastructure is preaching ICT as solution to reduce climate change threat. Sources: Ericsson Canada, (ITU), CANARIE The Challenge: ICT industry CO 2 emissions (3%), equivalent to aviation industry; ICT is 5 th largest industry in power consumption (8-9%), 2x each 5 years; Each of us must go from 26 tons/person to 2 tons in How?
2009 © Prompt inc. Prompt G-ICT : ITU – Quito, July 10 th, 2009 G-ICT Green Information & Communications Technologies 4 Why a Green ICT? The Opportunity: ICT may achieve up to 90% of Kyoto targets (ITU, 2008); ICT has potential to decrease overall GHG by 15% and save global; industry $US 800 billion in annual energy costs by 2020; Carbon economy growing by 58% to $92B, $500B by Sources: ITU Conference 2008, Smart 2020, Climate Check, WWF Canada, June 2008 ICT in Canada: Represents 1 megatonne of GHG (<1%) By better use, GHG emissions could be reduced by 20 megatonnes per year: M cars off the road - 7% of Canadas annual Kyoto obligation. Estimated benefits: $7.5B-$12.9B.
