Internet could be 1000 times greener, experts say
A new project that aims to make the internet 1,000 times more energy efficient was launched today in London.

Network infrastructure firm Alcatel-Lucent's Green Touch initiative will bring together a global consortium of telecoms industries, government experts and academics led by their research centre Bell Labs.

The consortium aims to tackle the increasing rates of energy consumption by computerised networks as broadband use becomes widespread globally.

Bell Labs president Dr Jeong Kim has said that workers in the information and communications technology industries have an 'open invitation' to help Green Touch to reach its goals.

Secretary of state for energy, Ed Miliband, said: "The Green Touch Initiative shows how business can play its part in delivering the low carbon society we are working to achieve.

"With government creating an environment in which innovation can flourish, we welcome industry coming together with academia to create the research, technology and solutions necessary to reduce carbon emissions."
