720 views

Published on

"End-user’s requirements gathering & validation" gave some initial take-away services on what is needed in the ICT marketplace to tackle energy efficiency and reduce carbon footprint in ICT sector.

The meeting brought together SMEs from the ICT sector with an international group of experts from the ICT industry, policy, regulatory, standards and academic fields who are part of the project’s External Advisory Group (EAG)

ICTFOOTPRINT.eu wants to become “the” consolidated effort that, at European level, raises awareness on metrics, methodologies and best practices in measuring the energy and environmental efficiency of the ICT-sector, to facilitate their broad deployment and uptake. ICTFOOTPRINT offers a set of solutions that aim at helping each targeted stakeholder in addressing its needs regarding carbon footprint consumption.
