Information & Communications Technologies Boost Energy Efficiency: SBI Bulletin

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 28, 2012) - At the forefront of innovation, information & communications technology (ICT) is one of the most rapidly growing sectors of the global economy. "SBI Bulletin: Energy Efficiency Technologies in Information and Communication Industry, 2005-2015" examines the cross-sector applications of ICT-enabled energy efficiency through 2015.

"The global value created through energy efficiency gains enabled by energy-smart ICT products and solutions across all sectors is projected to grow from $170 billion in 2010 to over $478 billion in 2015," said Shelley Carr, publisher of the report. "Concurrently, the global value created through the potential monetization of emissions reductions is expected to reach $70 billion by 2015."

The continued development and adoption of more efficient ICT, which includes 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.

"Continuing developments and adoption of energy saving technologies, specific to computers and peripherals amounts to well over 30% in energy reduction by 2015, compared to 2010 consumption," said Carr. "This includes the increasing sales of these products globally."

"SBI Bulletin: Energy Efficiency Technologies in Information and Communication Industry, 2005-2015" includes a thorough 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, including the ICT sector, power sector, logistics sector and industrial sector, as well as three cross-sector opportunities for efficiency enabling ICTs, buildings, dematerialization and travel substitution.
