Topics

#Climate Change, #Information and Communications Technology


Although the U.S. information and communications technology (ICT) sector is a large consumer of electricity, little is known regarding present and forecasted electricity acquisition and use, especially with regard to renewables. Jenny Heeter with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will highlight the results of NREL’s recent report, which found that 113 ICT companies are purchasing 8.3 million MWh of renewable energy, representing 14 percent of the 59 million megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity consumed by those companies in 2014. Under a range of scenarios, renewable procurement by these 113 companies could increase to between 18.5 million and 37 million MWh in 2020. 

The webinar will also provide case study examples of recent ICT company renewable purchasing. Ryan Schuchard, of BSR's Future of Internet Power will discuss how U.S. data center operators are sharing knowledge about how to source renewable energy and working with suppliers to encourage proactive renewables procurement.
