Abstract:  ICT is now consuming 5-8% of electrical energy worldwide on average with higher values, around 10%, in the developed countries. The amount is growing worldwide at a rate of roughly 5%, and electricity expenditures are a major part of the costs of telecommunications and computer operations. Due to the resulting environmental impact, this may create some day both cost and societal barriers to the development of ICT. Based on our recent research, we will describe how a computer or communication system can better balance the requirements of energy costs and quality of service. We will also discuss some future technologies that can considerably reduce these expenditures in electrical energy.
