ABSTRACT
Even with a variety of aggressive energy efficiency measures, the ICT sector's carbon emissions will nearly triple from 2002 to 2020. We must accelerate ICT energy efficiency so that we can increase the use of ICT in smart infrastructure capable of reducing global greenhouse gas emissions.
