    I am pretty unsure about the policy for green use of ict in organisations. I dont know when they are asking about policy, i have to explain how procurement and training policy can be used for green use of ict,? Or i have to say that there should be a green policy to ensure that ...... ?

    so what type of policy is for computer usage management for energy efficient operation?

    so what type of policy is for computer usage management for energy efficient operation?
    Procurement:
    - Buying hardware that is energy efficient.
    - Only buying hardware with the energy star on it which proves it is energy efficient.
    - When buying services, ensure that the organisation has green credentials.
    - Buy bulk of the SAME type of hardware, i.e. printer, so if one breaks down you can cannibalise bits that you need as opposed to just throwing away.
    - Buy application software as opposed to bespoke as these are flexible and hardware is easily upgraded with the software as opposed to bespoke which is designed on specific hardware.

    To go along side procurement:
    - Before you buy new peripherals, try and extend their lifecycle as this way you are not wasting used energy by buying a new uneeded product. For example, if the PC is slow, increase the RAM as this usually makes it faster.
    - Also when you are buying new peripherals, think about recycling, other people may have uses for your peripherals.

    Training:
    - Make sure the employees understand how to stay green.
    - Send them on "environmental organisation" courses.
    - Buy them guide books on being green which they can learn from.


    Anyone got any more ideas?

    i have, iv read through notes, then put them to a side and write down what i can remember, repeat the process until i know more or less all of it, haven't bothered with flow charts, dfd's etc. Tall/flat structures has to be the most boring topic i have ever read, almost fell asleep twice trying to revise it, so need to do a bit more on that, gonna check out the green ICT booklet soon.
    Also if they do ask us to draw a DFD they give marks away for fun like one mark for drawing the scope so not something to worry about too much

    Nope not finished the chapters in my blue and White book yet.
    It's just not staying in. Mainly concentrating on section B stuff so just revising everything. Dreading this exam. But like the others just thinking...it's my last exam is keeping me going.

    Dislike this subject after the last few months lol

    - the heating, lighting, use of machines (shared pc’s, printers, phones, etc), can be reduced
    - The space in the office will be reduced. All of these result in reduced energy usage, costs and carbon footprint

    right, correct me if im wrong, all hot-desking is, is people sitting on a different desk each day, how is office space reduced, still the same amount of people, using the same amount of energy they use on any other day just sitting on another desk in the same office

    I thought Hot-desking was sharing a desk with another employee. So if one works Mon-Wed and the other works Thurs-Sat they'll have the same workspace (share it) and because they work different shifts they won't ever collide. If they both had a desk each it would expand the space needed.

    This is what I thought it was And this means less space = less heating/air-con & electricity = less energy consumption

    I guess cos less are left on standby and more and in constant use which means people wont turn their personal one on and then leave it but wud rather go to one booted up? thats just me thinking on the spot tho

    Do u know why off-the-shelf is greener than bespoke btw? :confused:
