AIOTI Digital for Climate Task Force updated the IoT and Edge Computing Carbon Footprint Measurement Methodology Report.
This Report is addressing the users of IoT and Edge Computing technologies and services to help them understand and make informed choices on how to assess the carbon footprint of solutions and services they use and to also measure how these methodologies support carbon footprint reduction of their use.
The Report is structured to present rules and regulations of the European Green Deal, the initiatives and standards, and existing methodologies of measuring ICT carbon footprint. The report also includes how those methodologies can be applied to IoT and Edge Computing, the description of the methodologies, selection criteria and how to measure benefits of using them in reducing carbon footprint by using IoT and Edge Computing technologies and services for several industrial domains.
This version of the report (Release 2) updates the equations that were introduced in version (Release 1.1) of the Report, which address the calculation of avoided carbon emissions in industrial sectors when ICT is applied by focusing on:
The Report ends with conclusions and recommendations for practical use.
