Why was Green Power Indicator (GPI) created?
The electricity consumption of information and communication technology (ICT) continues to grow. But where does this power come from? Is it renewable?
The "Green Power Indicator" (GPI) displays whether the called site is hosted on a server, which is operated with environment-friendly produced electricity. In that way the extension supports the development of a "Green Web". The GPI is also resource-efficient because the traffic is kept minimal.
Eco-power quality is considered in a differentiated way. The provider must meet various criteria to be accepted for our list. We distinguish three quality classes of green electricity in the Green Power Indicator.
What's next for Green Power Indicator (GPI)
At the moment we are supplementing our database by new green energy providers and developing a front end so that everyone can easily participate in our project. The "Green Web" is just starting out - Join us!
Those who want to participate in the development of the Green Power Indicator, have various options:
* Evaluation of providers and green power qualities, further development of the dataset
* Software development: testing, design and developing
* Marketing: Placement of advertising banners, presentation at trade fairs etc.
