Reducing your ICT energy costs by using Linux and Open Source

Lowering your energy costs with innovation

I've spotted an article published and recently updated by Jisc about ICT energy costs reduction which stated that universities and colleges spend about £147 million a year just in ICT related energy costs.

The article rightly recommended various methods to save energy but there is a limit to what it can be saved if organisations keep using the same tools. While I agree with many of the recommendations present in the article I think that Jisc forgot mention an important one before promoting its own Cloud services.

Changes needs to be made in the education sector, like many other sectors, and probably we can find the solutions where efficiency matters the most.
