GREEN COMPUTING

  1. 1. Thank You Kingsoft Office published by www.Kingsoftstore.com @Kingsoft_Office kingsoftstore
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Green computing or green IT, refers to environmentally sustainable computing or IT.  It is "the study and practice of Designing, Manufacturing, Using, and Disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems efficiently and effectively with minimal or no impact on the environment.  It is an environmental friendly IT where the main objective is to reduce the hazardous materials and maximize the energy efficiency .
  3. 3. Why is Green Computing required? •Computer consumes a lot of energy. •Printing often unnecessary stuff is waste •Reduce pollution. •Reduce the power consumption •reduce the global warming •Toxicity. .
  4. 4. •It originated in 1992 at the U.S Environmental Protection Agency that launched Energy Star program. •Shortly after that the term “Green Computing” was coined. •Shortly after that the Swedish also launched the TCO Certification. HISTORY
  5. 5. Green Use Green Disposal Green Design Green Manufacturing Road to Green Computing
  6. 6. CPU uses 120 Watts CRT uses 150 Watts Energy use comes from o electrical current to run the CPU, motherboard, memory orunning the fan and spinning the disk(s) omonitor (CRTs consume more power than any other computer component) oprinters Energy Consumption
  7. 7. •Product Longevity •Software & deployment optimization •Power management • Materials Recycling •Virtualization •Algorithm Efficiency • Power Supply •Display •Storage • Telecommunicating APPROACHES
  8. 8. Carbon Free Computing  Solar Computing RoHS Computing Virtualization Methods to implement Green Computing
  9. 9. •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 •Use LCDs instead of CRTs as they are more power efficient •Use hardware/software with the Energy Star label •Choose Intel & VIA Processors in comparison to AMD Processors. Reducing the energy consumption
  10. 10. Green with Yahoo! Greener Firefox Surfing Other Green Surfing Efforts
  11. 11. •Environmentally Sound Purchase Systems •Sustainable Green Computing Plan •Reduce Paper Consumption •Conserve Energy •Recycling Steps For Green Computing
  12. 12.  Energy saving Environmentally Friendly Cost-effective ( pays over time ) Save more money per year Can give you a tax right off ADVANTAGES
  13. 13. High start up cost Not readily available Still in experimental stages Sacrifice performance for battery life Not for everyone DISADVANTAGES
  14. 14. The plan towards green IT should include new electronic products and services with optimum efficiency and all possible options towards energy savings. That is enterprise wise companies are laying emphasis on moving towards Eco Friendly Components in Computers, the use of eco-friendly sustainable components will become the norm rather than the exception in future. Future of Green Computing
  15. 15. The greenest computer will not miraculously fall from the sky one day, it’ll be the product of years of improvements. The features of a green computer of tomorrow would be like: efficiency, manufacturing & materials, recyclability, service model, self-powering, and other trends. CONCLUSION
