Some stuff I have learnt…

Global Temperatures 1850 - 2010

A clear correlation can be seen between the three global-average temperature records, which were created independently. They all show a marked warming trend, particularly over the past three decades. Data provided courtesy of NCDC/NESDIS/NOAA and NASA GISS

But… How Green Was My Videoconference?

  • One of a number of projects funded for 2010, others include Greening events, cloud computing, HPC power management, green printing, thin clients, etc…
  • We are:
  • Measuring the power consumption of videoconferencing studios and equipment.
  • Researching the ‘whole of life’ energy costs of videoconferencing
  • Assessing actual videoconferences to see how much travel (and therefore Greenhouse gases) have been saved.
  • Working with individuals and organisations in Wales to assess the issues and trade-offs.
  • Producing Case Studies and Reports on the transition, the pros and cons of videoconferencing

  • Cardiff (Round Trip: 220 miles; time: 5 hours 02 minutes)
  •  Pontypridd (200 m; 4h 36m)
  •  Swansea (156m; 4h 14m)
  •  Bangor (173m; 4h 02m)
  •  Lampeter (58m; 1h 36m)
  •  = Meeting totals — 807 miles; 19h, 30m
  •  = 807 x (Defra Conversion factor for a car less than 1.4 engine) (40px807 = £322.80)
  •  0.2947/mile x 807
  •  = 2.5 working days (@ approx 8 hours/day)
  •  = 238kg CO2 released.
