Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

Emissions reduction from virtualisation products: An interview with Mornay Van Der Walt and Nicola Acutt of VMware

http://www.renewableenergymagazine.com/interviews/emissions-reduction-from-virtualisation-products-an-interview-20170310



An IDC report, sponsored by VMware, shows how virtualisation products, namely VMware’s products, reduce carbon emissions. The report also evaluated the CO2 emissions that were avoided because of server virtualisation as well as consolidation. The results showed that this reduction in power consumption and CO2 emissions could be directly attributed to the use of virtualisation and VMware products around the world. The report found that CO2 emissions avoided related to the use of VMware server virtualisation products grew from 107,000 metric tons/year in 2003 to 67 million metric tons/year in 2015. This CO2 avoidance in 2015 alone was the equivalent of removing 14 million cars from the road.

REM talked to Nicola Acutt, vice president, Sustainability Strategy - Office of the CTO, VMware and Mornay Van Der Walt, vice president of Research & Development, Xplorer Group – Office of the CTO, VMware.
