  1. 1. Green computing By: Ridhvesh Shethwala E.NO:110240107034
  2. 2. Why need green computing? => computer energy is often wasteful • leaving the computer on when not in use (CPU and fan consume power, screen savers consume power) –printing is often wasteful • how many of you print out your emails or meeting agendas • printing out partial drafts • for a “paperless” society, we tend to use more paper today than before computer- prevalence
  3. 3. –pollution • manufacturing techniques • packaging • disposal of computers and components –toxicity • as we will see, there are toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing of computers and components which can enter the food chain and water!
  4. 4. E-wastE What is E-waste.? What happen with E-waste.? How we can prevent it.?
  5. 5. Disposal •Consider that the average computer lifespan is about 2 years (cell phones < 2 years) – 10 years ago, the lifespan of a computer was 5 years – between 1997 and 2004, it is estimated that 315 million computers became obsolete (and were discarded, donated, or recycled) •183 million computers were sold in 2004 (674 million cell phones!)
  6. 6. • New users in China (178 million by 2010) and India (80 million by 2010) will require the creation of new computers • Disposal of these devices constituted 20- 50 million tons per year (about 5% of the total waste of the planet) this waste is called e-waste Where are we going to put all of it?
  7. 7. • Europe has outlawed using landfills for computer components • The US and Europe export a lot of e-waste to Asian landfills (especially China even though China has outlawed the importing of e-waste)  in addition, incineration of computer components leads to air pollution and airborne toxins.
  8. 8. Profiling Energy Usage For Efficient Consumption • What is Energy Usage Profile (EUP)? • A simple Experiment – A Simple Fluorescent bulb (60W) – 1 Hour consumption: 0.06 kWh – Cost • $0.0897 per kWh • $0.0054 per hour • $47.15 for a year – CO2 expulsion • 23 lbs for 1 kWh • 1208 lbs for a year
  9. 9. Reducing 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 – in power saver mode, the top item is not necessary, but screen savers use as much electricity as any normal processing, and the screen saver is not necessary on a flat panel display
  10. 10. • Use hardware/software with the Energy Star label – Energy Star is a “seal of approval” by the Energy Star organization of the government (the EPA) • Don’t print unless necessary and you are ready • Use LCDs instead of CRTs as they are more power efficient
  11. 11. Approaches to GREEN COMPUTING •Algorithmic Efficiency •Power Management •Video Card •Display •Materials Recycling •Telecommuting
  12. 12. Green Technologies Power saving by link status Wi-Fi Scheduler
  13. 13. Green Web Surfing Greener Google Browsing: Blackle.com Being Green with Yahoo! Greener FireFox Surfing Other Green Surfing Efforts - -
  14. 14. To summarize • Green computing has introduced a range of equipments and technologies which help in limiting the impact on the environment. • Green computing is a novel and an innovative trend in the world of computing which has minimum or no impact on the environment. • Use of EUPs help in different aspects of the computing world help in recognizing the areas for improvement.
  15. 15. Steps to Green computing • Develop a sustainable Green computing plan • Recycle •Make environmentally sound purchase decisions •Reduce Paper Consumption •Conserve energy
