Affordable and Clean Energy


  
ICTs and energy efficiency can be connected in two ways: ‘Greening of ICTs’ and ‘Greening through ICTs’. In the first case, ICTs are being transformed and developed to be more environmentally sound and less carbon-intensive. In the second case, ICT-enabled solutions (for example smart grids, smart buildings, smart logistics and industrial processes) are helping to transform the world towards a more sustainable and energy efficient future. These green technologies and processes have the potential to play a significant role in significantly reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.​
