Transcript

  • 1. Network of Excellence in Internet Science Kick-off Meeting Brussels, 21-22 December 2011 Bart LannooInterdisciplinary institute for BroadBand Technology (IBBT) FP7-ICT-2011.1.6-288021 EINS JRA8 Internet for Sustainability  
  • 2. WP Objectives
      • How could the Future Internet help to relieve the main problems affecting sustainability at planetary scale?
        • Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions need to be drastically diminished during the coming decades
        • European 20-20-20 objective: by 2020,
          • 20% increase of energy efficiency
          • 20% increase of renewable energy sources
          • 20% reduction of CO2 emissions
      • “ Green ICT” vs. “ICT for Green”
      • Multi-disciplinary approach required
        • Cf. rebound effects
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 3. How green is ICT?
      • Footprint of ICT itself
        • About 4% of primary energy today
        • About 8% of primary energy by 2020
      • ICT lowering footprint in other sectors
        • Potential high
        • Rebound effects (realistic savings much lower)
      • 2 key research tracks:
        • ‘ Green ICT’:
          • Energy evaluation of different network paradigms
          • New energy-sparing network paradigms (Future Internet)
          • additional challenges: full LCA, not only CO2, …
        • ‘ ICT for Green’:
          • Tele-… through high-quality networks
          • Energy optimization in heating, transport, power grids, …
          • additional challenge: estimating rebound effects
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 4. Multi-disciplinary approach
      • Interaction between different factors:
        • Technical potential
        • User behaviour
        • Economic drivers
        • Regulation
      • User behaviour greatly affects potential vs. realistic energy savings
        • User adoption: are energy-efficient technologies used?
        • Rebound effects: cf. “using a less energy consuming product more frequently”
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 5. WP Tasks
      • R8.1: Assessment and reduction strategies for ICT energy consumption
      • R8.2: Investigating ‘ICT for Sustainability” tracks
      • R8.3: How to influence the user behaviour
      • R8.4: How to be influenced by the user behaviour: potential versus realistic benefit from ‘ICT for Green’ solutions
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 6. R8.1: Assessment and reduction strategies for ICT energy consumption
      • Giving an overview of the carbon footprint of the Internet
        • Frameworks and methodologies for measuring and reporting energy consumption of ICT
      • Identifying directions to lower the environmental impact
      • Short task (6M), being a common foundation and benchmark for R8.2, R8.3 and R8.4
      • Scanning results from various similar initiatives
        • GreenTouch, FP7 projects, workshops, standardisation bodies
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 7. R8.2: Investigating ‘ICT for Sustainability” tracks
      • Environmental monitoring
        • To assess consequences of e.g. pollutions
        • Using distributed sensor networks, by opening traditionally closed sensor systems
        • Technical & social [privacy] apects
      • Smart grid solutions
        • To reduce carbon footprint of energy supply
        • Introducing smart meters, adjusting scheduling strategies
        • Technical feasibility & steering user behaviour
      • Starting from existing activities
      • Identifying areas for further innovative research
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 8. R8.3: How to influence the user behaviour
      • Estimating and judging user behaviour of new “ICT for Green” solutions
      • Designing measures to drive user behaviour
        • Financial stimuli
        • Policies and regulations
        • Feedback to users themselves
      • Investigating how user-centric monitoring and feedback solutions could help
      • Interdisciplinary approach
        • ICT, social sciences and transportation area
    Brussels, December 21-22, 2011 EINS Kick-off Meeting
  • 9. R8.4: How to be influenced by the user behaviour: potential versus realistic benefit from ‘ICT for Green’ solutions
      • Potential benefit and reality can be quite different
        • Influence of user behaviour on actual savings
        • Psychological and sociological factors
          • Adoption
          • Rebound effects
      • Investigating and estimating the above factors for some “ICT for Green” solutions
