Green Computing Introduction Green computing is the environmentally responsible and eco-friendly use of computers and their resources. The study of designing, manufacturing, engineering using and disposing of computer devices in a way that reduces their environmental impact. The goal of green computing is to reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, the recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste. Green computing is important for all classes of systems, ranging from handheld systems to large-scale data centres. Many corporate IT departments have green computing initiatives to reduce the environmental effect of their IT operations. Question 1 1.1.1 Green computing is a way innovative thinking in how we as people can reduce the electronic pollutants and wastage of resources that occur daily when electronic devices are used electrically wise and in the form of the electronics which we throw away, it is a way of streamlining and optimizing the way the technology of today is used both on the software and hardware side. Green computing strives to: Use power more efficiently Reduce waste Limit the use of hazardous materials Create eco-friendly products Be sustainable Encourage telecommuting Promote teleconferencing tools Use cloud-based services and applications 1

Examples: Renewable Energy Sources Renewable energy sources don't use fossil fuel.They are freely available, friendly to the environment and generate little pollution. Apple, which is building a new corporate centre, plans to use wind turbine technology to power much of the building, and Google has already created a wind-powered data centre. Alternative energy sources aren't limited to large corporations or to wind. Solar energy has long been available to homeowners. It is already possible for homeowners to install solar arrays, solar water heaters and wind generators to provide at least some of their energy requirements. Other familiar green technology sources include geothermal and hydroelectric energy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
