Transcript of Green Computing

0 + - = 9 8 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 c Your Turn! -When looking out for computers pay attention to the "Energy star" label
-These computers are very power effective
-If you want a laptop with great battery life, look for netbooks with LED screens and power
-Get a flat panel monitor
-Better at making use of energy -Set the brightness to a minimum point
-Power Options
-Power saving mode
-Screen turns off after one minute
-Hard drives to spin down after 15 minutes
-Computer to stand by after 5 minutes
-Print Smarter
-Save paper (GreenPrint)
-Use both sides
-Power computer off at end of day/when leaving home
-Flash drives and USB mice draw a lot of power Disadvantages of Green Computing -More expensive computers; increased start up costs
-Energy saving technology costs consumers more to purchase
-Less powerful and high performing computers
- Energy efficient computers are not as capable as "non-green" computers Implementations/Applications Your Turn! THE END! Reduce. Recycle. Reuse. Reduce.Recycle.Reuse. The Next Step Forward…. Green Computing -Green Computing is the eco-friendly use of computers.
-In broader terms, the reduction of use energy of EVERY aspect of a computer.
-Including the designing, manufacturing/engineering, computer use, and disposing of computer devices in a way that reduces negative environmental impact. What is Green Computing? -In 1992 the launch of a program called Energy Star was one 1st manifestations of green computing.
-Energy Star served as a voluntary label awarding computer products that minimized the use of energy while maximizing efficiency.
-This included computer monitors, television sets, temperature control devices. Where did it all begin? Green Computing houses a broad range of uses
-Focuses on reducing the environmental impact of industrial processes and innovative technologies caused by the Earth’s growing population
-Creates fully recyclable products such as certain plastics in computers
-Alternative energy sources are: sun, wind, water, and sugar
-To reduce environmental issues caused by computer technologies, companies develop “E-Waste” and “Take-Back Recycling Programs”
-VIA Technologies is a Taiwanese company that manufactures motherboard chipsets, CPUs, and other computer hardware, introduced its initiative for "green computing" in 2001. Green Computing Implementations/Applications -
Intro -VIA Tech has there ambitions set on the sun and its energy use
-VIA Tech partnered with Motech Industries (one of largest producers of solar cells)
-Fully solar-powered devices that are nonpolluting, silent, and highly reliable were developed
-Once solar cells are installed, there is no cost to provide energy; costs of energy are declining since the initiation solar cells
-First entirely solar powered cyber community was developed in the South Pacific Green Computing Implementations/Applications –
Solar Computing VIA’s Green Computing Initiative is developing energy-efficient platforms for low-power computing devices.
The company introduced the VIA C7-M and VIA C7 processors
-These devices produce over four times less carbon during their operation
Intel is a company which is the world’s largest semiconductor maker
-Uses visualization software that runs on a single, powerful base system which, reduces power consumption Green Computing Implementations/Applications –
Energy Efficient Computing -Greenhouse Gases naturally blanket the earth
-The 1997 Kyoto Protocol for the United Nations took the first step in reducing emissions in computers
-VIA is trying to offer the first carbon free PC products
-Working closely with organizations that correctly recycle ICT equipment
-Dell is a key computer that utilizes carbon free computing
-Their “Plant a Tree for Me” project allows customers to offset their carbon emissions by paying an extra $2 to $4, depending on the product purchased
-AMD, a global microprocessor manufacturer use of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology in its manufacturing, and strained silicon capping films on transistors contributed to reduced power Green Computing Implementations/Applications –
Carbon Free Computing Pros and Cons Green computing saves
- Energy
- Money

Green computing benefits the environment. Reductions in energy usage from green computing means less carbon dioxide emissions, which results from a reduction in the fossil fuel used in power plants and transportation. Conserving resources means less energy is needed to produce, use, and dispose of products. Saving energy saves resources, which ultimately saves money. Benefits of Green Computing -Green computing is a cheaper alternative to non energy-efficient computing.

-Makes us more environmentally aware.

-Allows us to positively impact the environment. Overall Impact Shaterra Kirkland Benjamin Mesadieu Taliah Nelson Matthew Patterson Sheldon Powell Benjamin Mesadieu Benjamin Mesadieu Sheldon Powell Sheldon Powell Sheldon Powell Matthew Patterson Matthew Patterson Matthew Patterson Matthew Patterson Your Turn! When the machine retires, you may take it apart and sell working components on eBay. If you manage to rescue the hard drive, you can always keep it for yourself and jam it in a USB docking station, as long as there still is information there worth rescuing.
