Duane Tilden‘s insight:

"The Global e-Sustainability Initiative (GeSI), an information and communication technology (ICT) industry partnership, just released a new report that details how expanded use of ICT could cut global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 16.5% by 2020 and offset $1.9 trillion in gross energy and fuel costs. …  Unsurprisingly, the power and transportation sectors, respectively, are found to have the highest potential for GHG emission reduction via greater ICT adoption. But the report also finds agriculture – even more so than manufacturing or the consumer and service sector – to be an area with significant potential for greater energy efficiency."
