Lessons in Green IT from London Schools

Although universities are often criticized as ivory towers, divorced from the real world, when it comes to feeling the impacts of energy-sucking IT and office equipment, colleges are, to borrow a phrase from Us Weekly, “just like us.” Dozens of computers left running all night? Check. Sprawling data centers in need of serious energy management? They’ve got ’em. Ancient, energy-draining printers that see too much action? In every building. So a new study that shows how higher education institutions around London are putting green IT to work — as well as what solutions haven’t gained traction — offers plenty of lessons for the private sector as well. The study was conducted by London Higher, an umbrella group representing 40 universities and colleges, and published as part of an ongoing research project on Green ICT in London HEIs (higher education institutions).
