Digitalisation reduces carbon emissions to a great extent in many sectors and therefore helps to protect the environment. Simultaneously, the increasing use of digital technologies requires an immense amount of energy. To promote a resource-efficient economy, we need to consider energy efficiency and sustainability as core elements – not only in the development of new hardware, but also in the software used to run these systems.
This session will address the pressing issue of how resource efficient digitalisation can contribute to combating climate change, i.e., via using systems such as digital twins or identifying the policies and standards that need to be enforced to enable a digital and green transformation.
Preparation of the event is supported by Siemens AG and Hasso Plattner Institute.
