  • identify differences between existing terms and definitions;
  • develop and propose new definitions where necessary (gaps)”

Reminder of Terms of Reference - “The FG should:

  • analyze the energy-saving measures that ICTs would have, directly and indirectly (e.g. on transport), on Climate Change;
  • identify which measures need to be standardized;
  • perform a “gap analysis” of these measures, based on the ongoing activities inside and outside ITU-T;
  • develop and propose a roadmap for future work within ITU-T.

“The FG should develop tools (e.g. Checklists) and guidelines to allow ITU-T SGs to evaluate, for each Question, the possible future CO2E (carbon dioxide equivalent) reduction of technologies in terms of direct emissions from ICTs and possible savings in terms of Climate Change mitigation from the use of ICTs”

Reminder of Terms of Reference - “The FG should develop a methodology to describe and estimate present and future user [energy] consumption of ICTs over their entire life-cycle. This should include:

  • a calculation methodology of energy consumption saved through ICT utilization;
  • the definition of basic units relevant to the cases considered;
  • the identification, gathering and processing of relevant parameters (e.g. user behaviour);
  • the principles and tools to measure and evaluate the results;
  • a list of examples of the uses of how ICTs can replace or displace other energy-consuming technologies/uses;
  • an analysis of existing standards and a proposal for the development of new standards, if needed.
