Low carbon ICT
Low carbon ICT in Oxford University
The Low Carbon ICT project will develop a 'wake-on-LAN' (WoL) service to reduce the University of Oxford’s carbon footprint that results from the operation of its ICT infrastructure. Initial estimates suggest the service could reduce annual power use by a 2GWh so result in an annual saving in power costs of c. £200k, and save the production of over 1100 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
The WoL service software will be released as open source code as part of a tool kit, which will include technical documentation and training materials.
