US could avoid 20-30% of oil imports through ICT- enabled efficiency
- 21 November 2008
The US report found up to 22% of 2020 emissions (more than the 15% the global report identified) could be reduced using ICT-enabled solutions, which would also reduce dependence on foreign oil. The methodology was very similar to the global report, so I'm fairly confident that those numbers are realistic.
On Nov 18, we held an event in Washington, D.C. to discuss the global SMART 2020 report and US addendum. See a longer description on TCG's website and to download the global SMART 2020 presentation and the US Addendum presentations.
On his blog, Kevin Moss from BT challenged ICT companies to take the analysis forward with vision and practical but creative solutions.
