The size and capacity of the global telecommunications infrastructure is growing as the demand for on-line data and new Internet services continuously expand. The Internet and its associated data centres presently consume only a few percent of the global electricity supply, but this consumption is growing. In this talk, I will discuss the key contributors to energy consumption in the Internet and describe some approaches to the design of a more energy-efficient network.
