As per a Study the power consumption by data centers and servers is projected to grow to 100 million MWh by 2011 in US alone. As data center power consumption grows, so do carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The Study estimates that data centers currently generate 23% of all emissions produced by the Information and Communications Technology industry, a figure that continues to trend upward. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. data centers were estimated to produce 44.4 million metric tons (MMT) of CO2 emissions in 2007 and, based on historical trends, will produce more than 79 MMT of CO2 in 2011.1 To put this figure in perspective, it is approximately one half of the total carbon emissions of the entire airline industry. Data center emissions are projected to actually exceed those of the airlines by 2020.
