Green Data Center Initiatives
The Green Grid
Google Green homepage (with lots of ‘quant literacy’ factoids)
Google video on their ‘green’ data centers
Google’s “Renewable Energy Cleaner than Coal” initiative (investments in solar power and elsewhere)
GreenPeace likes Google
Open Compute Project (creating “green” servers)
Climate Saver’s Computing Initiative (create greener clients and servers)
Microsoft’s IT and Sustainability page
CleanTech Group, LLC – research energy use and efficiency, smart ‘high tech’ devices
great list of green hosting companies. Not many lists like this I could find!
You might want to look into Ethical Hosting.ca (http://www.ethicalhost.ca/).
Thanks for the link! I’ll add it to the “green hosting” section.
Thanks for this list! We are checking right now our >400 green hosters list at http://www.thegreenwebfoundation.org, to see if we can add a few more (we do). A tip maybe: if you install The Green Web addon through the mentioned site, you can see for every site you are visiting or every search you do, which sites are hosted green and where. So we do not only recognize green hosters, but look up every domain and check it with our database of AS-numbers and/or ip-ranges to give the best information. Hope you can mention this service on your informative page, users perform >500k checks daily now through the addons.
Keep up the good work and let us green the web together!
regards from Sweden, René.
Have a look a http://irishsolar.net We have been hosting our clients on green data-centers since 2007.
