  • Lorraine Hudson – Climate Change & Built Environment Coordinator working with Connecting Bristol, BCC’s Digital Partnership Thank you for inviting Bristol to make this presentation on such an important issue
  • Bristol is a Green City Only UK city shortlisted as part of EU Green Capital awards (congratulations to Stockholm and Hamburg) Launched Green Capital Initiative in 2007 Bristol Green Capital programme aims to accelerate the pace of change in our economy and our communities towards the low carbon future that will make Bristol a more sustainable, healthier, greener city.
  • Bristol is a leading Digital City, many creative digital organisations (Aardman, BBC wildlife, HP labs, SME’s and community organisations e.g. Watershed and KWMC) Bristol Environmental Technologies Sector (BETS) is a trade association and sector partnership between businesses, academia, investors, local authorities, regional and national agencies promoting the growth of the environmental technologies and services sector in the Bristol city-region. The Bristol area has an estimated 300-plus companies in the environmental technologies sector
  • DC10 linking Bristol to other leading digital cities and to the UK Government
  • 3 key projects: Techno Footprint Carbon Makeover DEHEMS
  • Funded by Carbon Trust to undertake carbon footprint of ICT, also know as Techno Footprint Answer the question, to what extent does business-use of ICT impact on energy-use and carbon emissions
  • First establish a definition of what to include - diagram shows what is included and pink boxes what is excluded Sector employee figures – Office of National Statistics Hardware units per employee – market research data, other data sources Energy consumption per hardware unit per annum – several sources e.g. Market Transformation Programme Supporting survey
  • Public admin, education and health biggest sector – 38% Finance, IT & other business activities – 34% Nearly £11 million pounds 67,000 tonnes CO 2
  • Breakdown by sector
  • There is a lot of attention on Green Data Centres but this chart tells us that PCs are the main draw on energy use
  • Figures broken down by hardware
  • CO2 emissions based on National Indicator 186 data
  • Green ICT solutions database More than 200 Green ICT solutions Hosted online – Community of Practice Cost, CO2 & difficulty
  • Have told you about work with business, but also about communities and promoting social innovation
  • Knowle West – neighbourhood in South Bristol Carbon makeover programme is about community identifying practical solutions to reduce their carbon footprint Responding to real needs, values and motivations of the community
  • Digital media – a way for Knowle West Media Centre to engage with community and a way for community to find out what’s going on and participate Support digital inclusion to bring about social innovation e.g.local food production, car sharing and energy efficiency
  • Working with Manchester, Birmingham and other EU partners on DEHEMS Digital Environment Home Energy Management System Looking at real time monitoring of energy-use in a real world setting Focussing on Innovative ICT and understanding the user-interface
  • South Bristol Digital Neighbourhoods Understanding ICT and the Environment as a cross cutting issue Impacts on business, work engagement, health, transport etc Relates back to DC10 agenda
  • Also links to EU network of living labs Creating a shared approach to real world, real time R&D
  • A quick overview of Bristol, ICT and energy use Key point to Act Now Make ICT part of the solution
