A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable tech: The Getting to a fossil free internet by 2030 free webinar on February 28.
Getting to a fossil free internet by 2030 – a tour of the tech and policy changes to get us there
Over the last few years, the idea of a carbon aware, fossil free internet by 2030 has become more than just interesting idea. It has become something that is socially and economically plausible, as well as desirable and in line with the latest climate science.
In this talk Chris will cover some of the key drivers to make this possible, and what key policy changes can accelerate our transition from fossil fuels in the technology sector.
Chris will discuss:
- the most promising ideas from the Internet Architecture Board’s recent workshops to explore how to reduce global ICT emissions in line with the science around staying within 1.5 degrees of warming;
- what new open source software like Ecovisors can do for on-site power;
- how carbon-aware computing schedulers and carbon aware networking routers can lead to an internet that can complement a shift to a grid powered by more variable renewable sources of energy;
- how a shift to hourly carbon accounting for electricity with new standards like Energy Tag’s Granular Certificates can cut through existing greenwash;
- some of the regulatory drivers on the horizon can help technologists argue for more ambitious climate action, from the European Corporate Social Responsibility Directive to recent changes in international accounting standards from the IFRS (international financial reporting standards) Foundation.
