Today, energy efficiency is widely regarded as one of the biggest technological and societal challenges
for developing a more sustainable world. The Internet - and more generally information and
communication technologies (ICT) – can play an essential role to achieve a more sustainable energy use
and to reduce our carbon footprint. On the one hand, Internet is a significant energy consumer, and it is
necessary to redesign current Internet technologies, as well as network architectures, devices and
components, services and protocols to improve energy efficiency. On the other hand, ICT is a key
enabling technology to foster a more intelligent use of energy in areas such as buildings, transport and
electric grids.
Both aspects of the problem raise interesting scientific challenges, and require a comprehensive effort and
inter-disciplinary research at all levels of abstraction. The goal of this conference is to bring together
people from different research areas, and provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share
experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers both from industry and
Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of energy-awareness for Internet-based
systems, and the design of ICT solutions for eco-sustainability are solicited.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
•  Green Internet
•  Power-aware Internet applications
