We know about going green: implementing environmental awareness programs, lowering carbon footprints, conserving water, and saving energy. We must now apply these principles to all of IT. In this session we will discuss what we have done at Stanford University to ensure environmental sustainability, from revisiting personal computing to promoting efficient research computing facilities. We will then explore how we are fundamentally changing our strategic business models to adapt to the evolving ecosystems of the 21st-century university.

"Every request for more energy is a challenge to be more green" #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Is the heat from the data center reused? Is the data center cooled only using A/C or also water? #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Google to Stanford: HPC 5-10 years out. Thus is it responsible to build a data center now? Questions left unanswered. #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Cost to run data center eclipses any cost of building construction #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Work Anywhere Initiative "work from home was critical" to reduce carbon output from commuting #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10 using WebEx and VoIP

Stanford has e-waste bins in every building with a third party recycler #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Stanford received $400k from energy company to make data center more efficient and lower PUE #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

From environmentalism to econ: letting people work from home would save carbon and money, but not necessarily energy #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

At Stanford IT consumes 15% of university's energy (compared to 3% across the US). #E10_FS15 #educause2010

IT Industry's CO2 footprint is equivalent to that of the Aviation Industry #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

Purchasing Energy Star Qualified Computers (like the T410!) is a low difficulty, high impact solution #E10_FS15 #EDUCAUSE10

#E10_FS15 Thanks for your comments; after the presentation your questions will be addressed with other questions/answers.
