Information and communication technologies (ICT) have become a driving force of economy and society sustaining growth and prosperity. On line data processing has in the last decade developed into a truly new infrastructure. ICT is ubiquitous and will become more so in the coming years. Also ubiquitous however has become the question of the sustainability of ICT. ICT has been singled out as a fast growing consumer of energy with a sizable carbon footprint. Already ICT consumes 8% of electricity in urban areas. Energy costs have become the largest proportion of ICT costs sometimes questioning the availability of the electricity needed.
