ICT Energy Efficiency - Commercial and Industrial
Online PR News – 09-April-2010 – – Bharatbook added a new report on "ICT Energy Efficiency: Commercial and Industrial" gives a broad review of the global market for information and communications technologies which enable conservation of energy.
ICT Energy Efficiency: Commercial and Industrial
While global energy consumption is high and rising, conventional fuel sources are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. Further, emissions resulting from the use of fossil fuels have been linked to global climate change and, within a rising number of countries, are subject to regulation. Consequently, governments, businesses and consumers around the world are seeking products and services to improve energy efficiency.

World marketed energy consumption was 462 quadrillion Btu in 2005. Going forward, global energy consumption is forecast to increase 19% between 2005 and 2015 to 551 quadrillion Btu. Conventional fuels such as oil and other liquid petroleum products, natural gas and coal are the world’s leading sources of energy.
Together, these sources are expected to account for approximately 85% of the world’s energy in 2010. Even considering the technological advancements and increasing penetration of renewable energy sources, the share of world energy supplied by conventional fuels is expected to remain flat to 2015. As fossil fuels, these resources are finite and current projections indicate that they will be depleted within a relatively short timeframe. Further, use of these fuels results in greenhouse gas emissions, which are linked to global climate change. Together with the fact that power generation using these sources is becoming increasingly expensive, current energy use patterns are unsustainable.
Products and services provided by the information and communications technology (ICT) sector enable energy efficiency and emissions reductions. ICTs can be employed to capture, analyze and respond to vast amounts of data which can lead to optimized energy use within large, energy-reliant sectors such as power, industry and logistics. Additionally, the adoption of ICT products and technologies can reduce energy consumption across sectors by enabling smart buildings, dematerialization and travel substitution. Meanwhile, various innovations and trends occurring within the ICT sector are expected to reduce the energy consumption of ICT products themselves.
The continued development and adoption of more efficient PCs and peripherals, data center servers and cooling technologies, telecommunications devices and infrastructure is expected to improve energy efficiency of products produced within the ICT sector. Globally, these improvements are projected to reduce the in-use energy consumption of ICT products by 895 billion kWh in 2015.
ICT Energy Efficiency: Commercial and Industrial includes a broad review of the global market for information and communications technologies which enable conservation of energy. The report examines opportunities for the ICT sector to improve the in-use energy efficiency of its products as well as the ability of the sectors’ products to enable energy efficiency across other sectors. Select ICTs which enable energy efficiency are discussed. These ICTs are categorized into 4 sectors: the ICT sector, power sector, logistics sector and industrial sector. Three cross-sector opportunities for efficiency enabling ICTs, buildings, dematerialization and travel substitution, are also discussed.
