Title: The Green Internet

The organization ecologeenet is striving to create an Internet with renewable energy. With the continuing rise in the number of connected computers, the Internet consumes more and more energy. In Germany in 2005 this amounted to the energy output of two atomic power plants. This is already more power than for lighting in Germany, and in Switzerland the IT share for 2006 reached 10% of the overall demand for electric energy, with an upward trend. The Green Internet advocated the use of renewable energy for all types of Internet services and seeks to motivate the widespread use of renewables. The energy supply of the future, especially in IT, puts the Green Internet in the role of decentralized energy generation.
