Rising power prices has forced society into rethinking how we can prevent the complete depletion of energy resources. Alternative power like wind and solar has been constantly turned to, and new energy-efficient technologies are being used in the construction, transportation, and agricultural industry to name a few. But on a community level, going green is still hampered by cost. Current non-renewable energy resources remain cheaper.
ZDNET Australia held a special webinar on how to go green without breaking the bank. The talk was led by professor Alemayehu Molla from RMIT University’s Green IT Observatory, and Graeme Philipson, technology writer and founder of Connection Research. Phil Dobbie will host the event.
The focus of the webinar was on the use green technology in the IT sector. The talk also focused on the economic realities which challenge the efficient use of green technology; the delivery of environmentally sustainable technologies; and overcoming barriers which prevent the uptake of green technology.
