ENERGY SAVING research of information technology in the enterprises
The main aim of the Is IT Green Project is to help those individuals who are responsible for IT & IS resources in European SMEs (i.e. IS/IT specialists or managerial staff) to reduce the IT/IS energy usage footprint of their or ganisations and so to take opportunities for saving costly energy resources within their businesses and help to improve business competitiveness.
So far we:
- have established a website with useful resources linked to ICT Green topic and
- are in a process of developing an e-learning course and a serious game that will be available at the end of May 2015.
In the present newsletter we investigated the journals and magazines that deal with green IT issues.
Do check the following links if you who would like to know more on the subject.
- Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems (SUSCOM) journal by Elsevier, whose main aim is to publish the myriad research findings related to energy-aware and thermal-aware management of computing resource.
- International Journal of Green Computing (IJGC) by IGI Global. It offers research contributions, constructive debates, and investigations on new legislations on green IT, green processes, healthcare informatics, and applications in terms of environmental and climate issues for both manufacturing and service industry.
