It is no wonder that a key component of the eco-nomic stimulus agenda in US, Japan, Europe and many other regions, is investment in broadband. Inter-net based-applications are a key to unleashing many opportunities for real solutions to climate change,such as smart homes, smart appliances, smart transportation and smart energy grids. Many companiestoday are already recognizing that going Green is not just “nice to do”, they are doing this as it makesgood business sense.The ICT industry has been making progress in energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy, andbest practices can be already shared. Even new technologies such as NGN, are innately green compa-red to their predecessors. ITU-T’s SG 5 on Environment and Climate Change examines how to measureand reduce the impact of ICTs on the environment in order to help advance the Green ICT agenda.Energy efficiency is the easiest and quickest thing companies can to do reduce their consumption. Someobvious examples can be found in new types of data centers, and innovative techniques such as water cooling, air cooling, flywheel storage, virtualization of servers, etc. Virtualization and cloud computinghave now added an interesting dimension to increasing efficiency through the Internet.The future Internet is arriving as new patterns emerge on the use, applications and business models for Net services.
