Green computing ppt

  1. 1. Green Computing: Future of Computers By : Raj Kumar Student ,BCA V semester(Roll-37) School of Computer And Systems Sciences Jaipur National University Jaipur
  2. 2. Introduction  Green Computing is “ Where organizations adopt a policy of ensuring that the setup and operations of Information Technology produces the minimal carbon footprint” .  Green computing is the term used to denote efficient use of resources in computing , it is also known as Green IT .  Green computing is the study which emphasizes on the operation of computers and its peripherals in order to minimize the carbon footprint. Green computing had given the perspective to think in the direction that technology is not only meant for accomplishment of our tasks but also making
  3. 3. NECESSITY OF GREEN COMPUTING  Reduce energy consumption of computing resources during peak operation  Save energy during idle operation  Use eco-friendly sources of energy  Reduce harmful effects of computing resources  Reduce computing wastes
  4. 4. Eco Friendly Approach  Electronics giants are about to roll out eco-friendly range of computers (like desktops and laptops) that aim at reducing the e-waste in the environment.  Energy-intensive manufacturing of computer parts can be minimized by making manufacturing process more energy efficient.  Power-sucking displays can be replaced with green light displays made of OLEDs, or organic light-emitting diodes  Landfills can be controlled by making best use of the device by upgrading and repairing in time with a need to make such processes (i.e., up gradation and repairing) easier and cheaper
  5. 5. Eco Friendly Approach  Use of toxic materials like lead can be replaced by silver and copper making recycling of computers (which is expensive and time consuming at present) more effective by recycling computer parts separately with an option of reuse or resale.  By replacing petroleum-filled plastic with bio plastics—plant-based polymers— which require less oil and energy to produce in comparison to traditional plastics with a challenge to keep these bio plastic computers cool .
  6. 6. CHALLENGES IN GREEN COMPUTING  Equipment power density / Power and cooling capacities.  Increase in energy requirements for Data Centers and growing energy cost.  Control on increasing requirements of heat removing equipment, which increases because of increase in total power consumption by IT equipment’s.  Equipment Life cycle management – Cradle to Grave.  Disposal of Electronic Wastes.
  7. 7. FUTURE OF GREEN COMPUTING  Recyclable paper laptop : One of the most environmentally friendly computers that you can think of purchasing is the Recyclable Paper Laptop. This concept laptop is crafted from papers that have been recycled or pulp materials that are essentially packed in layers.  IMEC laptop : This unique laptop can be easily powered using just two solar cells and encourages people to understand the importance of solar energy or alternative energy.
  8. 8. FUTURE OF GREEN COMPUTING  Life book Leaf multipurpose laptop : The idea of designing such a concept based laptop came to designers Carl Burdick and Laura Karnath who were competing for the “Fujitsu Design Award - A life with future computing”. Some of the other exciting features of the gadget include OLED touch screen that spreads out easily and can be conveniently folded as a laptop. Its exterior is carved out of polycarbonate, which is optically sensitive material and shatterproof as well.
  9. 9. FUTURE OF GREEN COMPUTING  LOOP-Ecofriendly desktop computer : Better known as the LOOP, you will have to place an order for this system online so that it can be delivered to your home directly.  EVO PC Concept : The EVO PC that is made from materials that are sustainable as well helps a great deal when it comes to reducing carbon footprint in comparison to the traditional computers.
  10. 10. FUTURE OF GREEN COMPUTING  Compaq EOS sustainable desktop : This gadget incorporates very few components and offers basic computing power only. None of the components in this system are fixed, which makes it easy for the consumers to replace any broken component with ease and thereby reduce e-waste and promote recycling.  Igglu modular PC concept : This system incorporates color coded and hot swappable modules for optical drives, hard drive, graphic cards, RAMS and PCI drives. Users can easily replace these modules and send them back to the company for recycling.
  11. 11. FUTURE OF GREEN COMPUTING  'Bento' solar-powered concept : The credit for designing this solar powered system goes to Rene Lee, an American product designer. This system is essentially a combination of notebook, Smart phone and tablet computer that are all packed in a single system.  Solar Laptop Concept : The solar laptop concept is the brainchild of designer Nikola Knezevic and is perfect for safeguarding the environment as well as minimizing your electric bill. The top half portion of the laptop is attached to a solar panel that is capable of extracting the maximum amount of sun.s rays when it is folded out.
  12. 12. Carbon free computing  It has been estimated that the concentration of CO2 is increasing day to day very quickly. The other gases which affect the greenhouse are methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (NO2) and fluorocarbons (CCl4). These gases are able to increase the temperature of the earth, which causes to lead the drought and floods and rising the sea level. These also affect the life on earth. In 1997 Kyoto in USA tried to reduce the emission of CO2 from electronic devices and other devices. These devices are manufactured in such way that they take less energy.
  13. 13. CONCLUSION  Technology is not a passive observer, but it is an active contributor in achieving the goals of Green Computing. IT industry is putting efforts in all its sectors to achieve Green computing. Equipment recycling, reduction of paper usage, virtualization, cloud computing, power management, Green manufacturing are the key initiatives towards Green computing.  Current challenges to achieve Green Computing are enormous and the impact is on computing performance. Efforts of Governments and Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are also appreciate-able.  Government regulations are pushing Vendors to act green; behave green; do green; go green; think green; use green and no doubt to reduce energy consumptions as well. All these efforts are still in limited areas and currently efforts are mainly to reduce energy consumption, e-Waste but the future of Green Computing will be depending on efficiency and Green products. Future work in Green Computing discipline will also rely on research work in academics since this is an emerging discipline and there is much more need to be done. There is need for more
